As you plan your outdoor movie extravaganza, it's important to stay compliant with all movie copyright laws. Whenever you show a movie outside your home, it must be properly licensed. So, whether you're screening a family-friendly film at a local park or planning a holiday movie viewing at your business, you'll need movie licensing.

Before you start to sweat, let us put your mind at ease. We work with the two top film licensing agencies for film studios — Criterion Pictures and Swank Motion Pictures are the leading film licensing agencies in the industry and represent all the major film studios.

Film Licensing FAQ

How to Get a Movie License

Whether you're planning a groovy drive-in movie experience or a summer film fest, you'll need a movie license. The two primary film licensing companies do not represent the same studios. You can search their websites to find out which titles they carry. However, some popular movies are not available for screenings.

While FunFlicks® is here to answer any questions you may have and help streamline the process, you must contact these companies directly to secure the rights to show your desired film. The customer service reps are very helpful and make the process as simple and straightforward as possible.

Do I Need a Movie License?

If you're planning to show a movie at a public venue or anywhere outside your home, yes, you need a license. Motion picture companies are serious about copyright laws and aren't afraid to go to court when their rights are violated. It's best to avoid unwanted publicity and hefty fines by getting your movie license upfront.

Plus, licensing means your money goes to the writers, musicians, computer programmers, producers and all those people who worked hard to create the movies you love.

What if I'm Not Charging Admission?

You still need a license for any public performances, whether you're selling tickets or your event is free and open to the public.

What if I Own the Movie or It's on My Streaming Service?

You still need a movie license. Owning, renting or streaming a movie doesn't give you the right to show it publicly outside your home.

What Is the Cost of a Movie License?

Licensing costs can fluctuate, even on a weekly basis. The best way to find out how much a movie license costs is to contact one of the licensing companies directly for a firm quote. If you choose to go with Criterion Pictures, FunFlicks® can give you a $100 discount on your movie license.

Who Do I Pay for a Movie License?

FunFlicks® does not collect any licensing fees. Your contract will be with the licensing company and your fees will go directly to them. If you need more info about setting up an account or the licensing process, we would be happy to steer you in the right direction.

Can I Charge Admission to My Movie Screening?

In some cases, you can charge admission. However, this could change the cost of your license or the licensing company could ask for a percentage of your ticket sales. Contact the film licensing reps directly to find out more.

What Movies Are Available?

Almost any movie! If the film you want has been released on DVD, chances are you can screen it. Both Criterion and Swank have a list of movie selections to choose from on their websites. You can also contact a licensing rep if you don't see the film you want.
