Library Terms of Use

Public Performance Rights (PPR)

Public Performance Rights (PPR) are available as part of our library DVD subscription club or by individual title. PPR is required for screenings to audiences of 50 or fewer attendees, with no admission charged. These rights are valid for the life of the DVD and cover group screenings, face-to-face classroom teaching, and individual checkout. PPR is non-transferable and cannot be shared among multiple organizations.

If you expect more than 50 attendees or plan to charge admission, please contact Maxwell Wolkin at to get a quote for an exhibition fee.

Digital Rights Licenses (DRL)

Digital Rights Licenses (DRL) allow an organization to upload and host a film on a single password protected server. Rights are limited to members within a single organization and are non-transferable.

Film Movement delivers the film on DVD and organizations are responsible for their own encoding. Films may not be re-encoded without renewing DRL with Film Movement.
