You could try Baker and Taylor
They are excellent for a wide range of feature, foreign language, and
documentary material. They are also willing to advise on agreements and
public performance rights. Their library reps have been exceedingly helpful
for us. However, there is no way that a single supplier could supply all
our video/film requirements.
