I'm fairly certain that this topic has been discussed on this list, but
I am new to the list and new to my current position. I'm responsible
for setting up adult programming for our library and its branches and
part of what I'd like to do is a film series that would run in
conjunction with a speaker(s) discussing hard-boiled crime fiction. I
know about the two main site licensing companies and have contacted them
for pricing of a contract. My problem with them is that they don't
allow the holder of the license to advertise film titles. I'm sure they
have their reasons, but I don't feel that advertising a film series
without titles is very productive. I know there are ways around this
because I see other libraries advertising specific titles all the time.
Either they are cheating or they are contracting for a license through
someone else.

So, do I have to license with each individual distributor to show
specific titles and advertise them? Is this costly? There is no budget
for programming for our system, so I have to beg, steal or borrow to
implement anything. Please respond to me off list as I'm sure that this
topic has been covered and I wouldn't want to clutter up everyone's
email with a repetition.

Thanks so much for your help,
