Our library has an umbrella license with Swank to show films, but we are
finding that many movies we want to show aren't covered by that agreement.
For example, a colleague wanted to have a festival of films by the Mexican
actor Cantinflas, but the only film we could show was "Around the World in
80 Days." I'm hoping to show several of the Academy Award-winning
documentaries next year, but it appears few of those are covered. I have
purchased some DVDs with public performance rights, but that's pricey. Any
