University & College license with PPR

This license covers the physical media, DVD or Blu-ray purchase of a film. The license length is life of format. It allows for all university affiliates (affiliates defined as current students, staff, and faculty) to view the film individually or in a group-setting without limitation on audience size or venue type so long as audiences are in a single physical space. Screenings must be for non-paying audiences in a non-commercial fashion. Use of the film in classrooms for teaching, student organizations hosting a viewing for university affiliates, or playing the film on a campus theater for university affiliates would all necessitate the purchase of this PPR license.

Digital Site License (DSL) with PPR

It allows for all university affiliates (affiliates defined as current students, staff, and faculty) to view the film individually or in a group-setting without limitation on audience size or venue type so long as audiences are in a single physical space. Screenings must be for non-paying audiences in a non-commercial fashion. Use of the film in classrooms for teaching, student organizations hosting a viewing for university affiliates, or playing the film on a campus theater for university affiliates would all necessitate the purchase of this PPR license.

This format also allows the university or college to host the film on a secure, password protected platform like Kanopy, Blackboard, etc. Please confirm via email what platform you plan on hosting your DSL to ensure the film file is adequately protected.

Files are delivered via password protected downloadable .mp4 link. Please securely download the file within one week of purchase.
