You will have 30 days to preview the program during which time you may contact us to process a purchase, or return the DVD to us at no charge. Your card will not be charged unless we do not receive your return within the preview period. Extended previews are available for district, regional and university media buyers.

Unless otherwise noted, all prices not listed as home use on our site include a limited public performance license which permits unlimited single site, non-theatrical, non-commercial, non-broadcast, internal use by the purchasing organization only. No admission fees may be charged, and no public uses are permitted (screening or use of the DVD with others outside the purchasing organization) unless a commercial license is purchased. These rights are non-transferable.
DIGITAL SITE LICENSES (DSL)
Digital site licenses for most of our programs are available upon request, if not stated on the film's page. DSL allows you to locally host and stream a film on a closed system to your institution for the life of the digital file. We can provide either a DVD for you to encode a digital file, or we can provide a digital file for you to download. Please inquire.
Many of our titles are available for broadcast, cablecast, and/or footage licensing. Please inquire by email or telephone.
We offer several levels of pricing to make our programs available to a wide range of institutions and groups. Our films are produced by independent producers who share in the revenue of every sale we make, and count on that income to help cover the high cost of producing media programs. If you are unable to afford the prices listed, please contact us. Prices are subject to change without notice.
Discounts, special offers, coupons and other promotional incentives may not be combined with any other discounts, special offers, or coupons. Please inquire for more information.

PUBLIC LIBRARY PRICING
Special pricing is available for circulation copies of most of our programs where no public performance license is required. Please inquire regarding pricing for specific titles.
