Public Performance (or video) License for 2020

EDGE is pleased to offer you the opportunity to obtain a Public Performance Video License at great cost savings for your community of faith!  Public Performance Licenses enable your community of faith to show full-length or clips from movies or TV shows for public viewing as a part of things like worship, fundraisers, family nights, youth group events, or educational programs. If you are interested in showing films or TV shows to a group in your building in any of these circumstances, you need a public performance license. Showing films without a public performance license is a breach of Canadian Copyright Laws.  We have negotiated video licensing agreements with Criterion Pictures and Audio Ciné Films (ACF) Inc. who represent most of the major distributors including Paramount, Universal, Alliance Atlantis, New Line Cinema, Miramax, Disney, Veggie Tales and many, many more!  For more information about these licenses, the fee structure, and how to apply, please visit: http://buyingunited.net/video-licensing  The application deadline for a 2020 license is December 31st, 2019.  For any additional questions, please email or call Alexandra Belaskie at abelaskie@united-church.ca or 1-800-268-3781 x 4157
