It is my understanding, from my experience and my husbands' high school
course in cinematography....that in order to show ANY film, for any purpose
other than a few minutes clip, you need to recieve a release from the studio
for the specific film and purpose it is being used.
Bill writes at the beginning of the year to each major studio listing the
films he wants to show and why, many studios give partial or blanket
permission, some do not give any! In our school district you cannot show
any films/videos without this approval or the district purchase and approval
of film. Lawsuits are NO fun!
