Hello, Video Librarians.
I have received a request from a professor who wants to show Derby (1971) and Roller Derby Girl (1949) in Lumina Theater in the spring semester. Any thoughts on who has the Public Performance Rights for either of these? I'm about to leave town for the next week to take care of my father, who has just gotten out of the hospital and is having a difficult recovery. As I will not have time for a complete search for some time, I am hoping someone already knows about either of these films. For some reason, I have a vague memory of one of you offering a helpful site for finding PPR on really old films, recently, but it could have just been a pleasant dream. Here are the leads I have from just a couple of minutes (all I had) on IMDB and the internet:
Derby<http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0169756/> (1971<http://www.imdb.com/Sections/Years/1971/>)
Cinerama Releasing Corporation (1971) (USA) (theatrical)
Red Alert Films (2008) (USA) (DVD)
Code Red DVD (2009) (worldwide) (DVD)
Roller Derby Girl (1949<http://www.imdb.com/Sections/Years/1949/>)
Republic Pictures
Paramount Pictures
Turner Classic Movies
In honor of the upcoming holiday, I am thankful for the Videolibrian list serve members!
Happy Thanksgiving,

Ms. Jackson-

I am hoping that you can assist me in fleshing out what would be necessary to put together a film event at the Lumina Station sponsored by the Public History Program. We have been thinking that the current resurgence of interest in Roller Derby might provide and attractive and productive opportunity to discuss feminism and athletics.

The two historic films that we would think we might be able to show are Roller Derby Girl from 1949, a 10 minute documentary that was nominated for an Oscar, and Derby, a feature length documentary from 1971.

What is the process for setting up such an event? How would I find out if these films are available?

Any assistance you could provide concerning how to put this together would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes-

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.
