The Library does not hold public performance rights for any feature film or TV series videodiscs (all videodiscs in the Movies & TV section and some in the Documentary section). If you want to host a screening of any of these videodiscs publicly, you are responsible for contacting a licensing service company to obtain a rental copy and to pay for rights.
Swank Motion Pictures is a good place to start if you are interested in screening a relatively recent release. Criterion and Kino will be able to license some foreign and classic films. Film Movement distributes primarily recent foreign films.
You should consult IMDb if you are unsure of a film's distributor, or if you are unable to find a film through one of the licensing service companies listed in the next column. After you find the distributor information through IMDb, you can then go through the process of contacting the distributor directly.
