Well this a VERY long term. Do you own the film in perpetuity?
In most cases we could never have a license past five years or seven at the
most as WE could lose rights on the film. Now in fairness the film maker or
producer is unlikely to object as they tend to get half anyway.
You also should get a little more info clarifying definition
of University Community to make sure that it basically includes only
students, faculty and staff employed or attending the University

Honestly for a term THAT long I would think $600 on up
