Public Performance Video Licenses

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  To learn more about what the license offers, and answers to some frequently asked questions, please visit: http://buyingunited.net/video-license-faq  The current application round offers licenses that will start on May 1st, 2020 until April 30th, 2021.  The deadline for this round of applications is March 27th, 2020.
