To show a film for entertainment purposes on campus your group must obtain permission from the copyright owner or obtain a license.
By renting your movie from SWANK Motion Pictures or another company that rent to college campuses you are buying the license to show the movie to a large group. Prices to rent a movie from SWANK ranges from $200-$800 depending on the movie’s release date and its popularity. More information about SWANK Motion Pictures can be found at www.swank.com/college/index.html or by calling 1-800-876-3344.
