Film Rental for Public Screenings
video & cables services
Video & Cable Services assists the Boston College community in locating films and videos for rental and also obtaining the rights needed for any type of public performance.
If you would like to rent a film or video for any academic purpose or you are representing a student group that would like to show a movie in a public venue, your department/group needs to fill out the film rental request form. MTS will then research the film and attempt to find a distributor. If a distributor is found, MTS will contact you with the rental price of the film. Once the price is agreed upon, the invoice will be billed by the vendor to your purchasing card.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROCESS CAN TAKE UP TO 6 WEEKS TO COMPLETE.
You will make arrangements with the vendor to have the DVD shipped directly to you and it is your responsibility to return the DVD to the vendor when done.
PLEASE NOTE THAT PUBLIC PERFORMANCE RIGHTS ARE REQUIRED FOR ANY PUBLIC VIEWINGS OF ANY COPYWRITTEN FILM OR DOCUMENTARY, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER BC OWNS A COPY OF THE VIDEO/DVD.
