Screenings on Campus

What to do before you screen a film:

The Copyright Act's fair dealing excerpt does not cover the screenings of films by societies and other organizations on campus (Ex. CSU, student groups, student societies). These screenings require Public Performance Rights (PPR).

Screenings inside the classroom or course context are covered - no need to contact us for these.

Before you screen a film outside class, please fill out the form below so we can ensure the school has the appropriate licenses. If the film is not covered by one of our current licenses, we can help you investigate getting permission from the copyright holder or distributor.
