Speaking of PPR, I need your valuable assistance. Surprisingly enough,
the global village students have asked me to come speak to their group
about PPR, copyright, etc. With the exception of the following PPR
providers, who would you recommend as the top PPR providers for East
Asian films in the United States and Canada?

Criterion, USA
Facets, Multi-media
Kino, International
Milestone Films
Motion Picture Licensing Corporation
New Yorker Films
SWANK Motion Picture, Inc.
Zeitgeist Films
Women Make Movies
Third World Newsreel

I would greatly appreciate your responses no later than this Friday.
Thanking you in advance.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
