PUBLIC PERFORMANCE RIGHTS allow educational and non profit groups to exhibit our films to groups of 50 or fewer individuals where admission is not charged. The term of the public performance license varies according to the film. However, if you intend to charge admission, expect an audience over 50, or publicly advertise the screening, then we ask that you contact us regarding an exhibition fee. Films purchased without Public Performance Rights are restricted for individual viewing or face-to-face teaching in the classroom only.

Cinema Slate offers Digital Site Licenses for all our films. These allow colleges, universities or libraries to encode, locally host and stream to their community on a closed system for the life of the digital file. Different titles have different license terms.

Q. What are the benefits of a Digital Site License?
A. An unlimited number of viewers are able to access the film once it is encoded. The film can also be viewed multiple times allowing students to review the material if necessary for assignments. Films can be uploaded and viewed from multiple locations simultaneously. Overall, digital site licenses maximize the number of individuals who have access to the film.

Q. How much will the license cost my university or library?
A. Digital Site Licenses are available both with and without Public Performance Rights.

  • DSL $500
  • PPR with DSL $600

Q. How do I go about purchasing a Digital Site License.
A. Digital Site Licenses are available for order either on our website at each film’s info page.
