WHAT TYPES OF LICENSES ARE AVAILABLE?
FILM PLATFORM handles “educational” distribution, as opposed to ”theatrical” or “home entertainment” licences. Our main customers are educational institutions, and we allow them to utilize our films in various ways: from individual viewings in the library or at home (as one might use a library book), to group screenings in classrooms, lecture halls and auditoriums. Our licenses are also applicable to non-profit organizations.
A Public Performance Rights (PPR) licence grants you ongoing rights to use the film for non-profit, educational screenings. For more information on PPR licences, please click here to read more. We also provide the option of a Digital Site License (DSL), which enables organizations to stream our films on password protected servers. A PPR license is granted for the life of the DVD/Blu-ray or digital file. A DSL license is granted for a 3 year period.
A Streaming License will allow you to stream a film directly from our hosted platform. The license can be set up for streaming access on campus or via an off-campus proxy IP. A Streaming License can be obtained for a 1 or 3 year license term. To learn more about our streaming platform, please click here.
