Licensing Film Screenings

COPYRIGHT LICENSING: A BRIEF EXPLANATION

When a film or TV show is produced, a studio or distributor acquires copyright ownership which enables them to make it available for audiences to view through a number of channels including:

NON-THEATRICAL VIEWING

Watching films and TV shows outside the Cinema or an individual's home.

HOME ENTERTAINMENT

Watching films and TV shows in an individual's home.

THEATRICAL VIEWING

Watching films in cinemas.
