QUESTIONS about selecting the right screening license?
Please see our licensing FAQ below or contact our Outreach Producer Matt Chandler for further information.
I'D LIKE TO SHOW THE FILM TO MY COMMUNITY, CAN I JUST PURCHASE A DVD?
To show States of Grace anywhere outside your home, you are legally obligated to purchase the appropriate license for your institution.
WHAT TYPE OF LICENSE DO I NEED TO PURCHASE?
Corporation: This license is for all businesses, foundations and hospitals. If you’re showing the film to any kind of public or private gathering that’s not an educational institution, library, or community group, you should purchase the Corporation license.
College/University: This license is for all higher educational institutions, including public and private colleges, universities, community colleges, graduate schools, advanced degree programs, and medical schools. If you are a professor, librarian, or administrator at one of these institutions, you should purchase the College/University license.
Community Group: This license is for all nonprofit community organizations to show the film to any kind of public or private gathering that's not in a school, library, or educational institution.
K-12/Public Library: This license is for public libraries and K-12 schools. If you're a librarian, teacher, administrator, or educator at one of these institutions, you should purchase the Public Library/K-12 license.
CAN I SHOW THE FILM AT MULTIPLE CHAPTERS, BRANCHES, OR LOCATIONS OF MY ORGANIZATION?
Each Screening Kit includes an unlimited exhibition license at one facility. This means you can show the film as many times as you'd like at one physical location, chapter, or branch. To show the film at multiple locations, you must purchase a separate Screening Kit for each location.
DO ALL SCREENING KITS HAVE THE SAME CONTENTS?
Yes, all Screening Kits contain a DVD and a printed Discussion Guide. This guide as well as FAQs and Grace’s Medical Case History are downloadable from the website. Each Kit also includes the appropriate license, which is based on the type of organization and usage of the film.
WHY ARE THE PRICES FOR INSTITUTIONAL SCREENING LICENSES HIGHER THAN THE COST OF A HOME VIDEO DVD?
Home video DVDs do not include public performance rights, so their use is limited to home screenings with just a few people. Having public performance rights greatly increases the potential uses of the film and therefore costs more.
As independent filmmakers, our goal is to make the film accessible to all types of organizations and, at the same time, generate enough revenue to keep our outreach efforts moving forward. We therefore offer a tiered licensing and pricing system based on the general usage for each type of organization and their operating budgets.
CAN I CHARGE ADMISSION FOR A SCREENING?
You may take donations or charge up to $15 per ticket for an audience up to 100 with the above screening licenses. Please contact our Outreach Producer to negotiate the terms for a larger fundraiser event or conference screening.
