Public Media/Home Vision carries feature films.  The non-theatrical list formerly handled by Films Inc. seems to be gone from the face of the earth.

Films Inc died a lamentable death a number of years back.  To my knowledge, the majority of their non-theatrical titles dropped off the end of the earth at that time.  Really, really, sad!  They had a great list.  It's vaguely possible that some of those titles are still available as rentals from University Media Centers (Penn State, you out there???)

Yea! we're out here -- not exactly sure what we might have in the collection from films in ... but I do have a note in my distributor file that Films Inc. became (or became part of) Public Media/Home Vision.  If you're looking for something specific, you might try giving them a call: 800-826-3456.

If you're curious if Penn State has something, check out our website: , call us at 800-826-0132 or throw me an email.
