Re: [Videolib] Video with Broadcast Rights

Well I am not= sure if  you mean strictly educational films or feature films as well =  but in any event rights do have
to be negotiated separately and you also need to know what formats would be= required ( Beta, DVD etc). For feature
films broadcast rights are a whole different issue.  I sort of doubt y= ou want to go dealing with Hollywood studios but
companies like Kino, New Yorker. Milestone , Zeitgeist etc usually have &nb= sp;broadcast rights on most of their films

I think you need to think about the type(s) of films you are looking for, t= he length of time  and number of shows you would want per film
and the format.  Costs can be all over the map but format is a key com= ponent as if you need Beta format it will of course much
more.

I am afraid I don’t know much about broadcast rights for educational = films



The Director at my library has asked me to research if there are any film s= eries available to be broadcast on our city’s cable TV network, especi= ally those that would enhance the library’s mission statement:
=
“A literate populace and the freedom to re= ad are essential to democracy. The Virginia Beach Public Library provides fr= ee access to accurate and current information and materials to all individua= ls and promotes reading as a critical life skill.”

I understand that broadcast rights are different = from public performance rights, but I do have questions about how to proceed= .

Are broadcast rights negotiated individually? &nb= sp;What kinds of costs might we expect?

Are there programs available that are appropriate= for a municipal cable TV network?  We are interested in a wide range o= f topics from children’s programming to family history.

Any wisdom you can share would be greatly appreci= ated.

If you reply to the list, please also copy me per= sonally.

Thanks for your help.
