My gut reaction is that this use is not commentary and/or criticism, since
the analysis is not of the film content, but rather how the film content
illustrates other points.

As described, these presentations do not appear to be within established
class sessions, so the classroom exemption does not appear to apply. I
personally do not think a strong Fair Use argument can be made, especially
for presentations involving paid attendance.

That said, IF the scenes are compiled with other content, this use might
fall within the provisions of the Fair Use Guidelines for Educational
