Public performance of films and videos may be restricted by copyright law &/or licenses negotiated by UFV.
Educational use provisions in the Copyright Act allow the showing of films and videos in the classroom, so long as the audience is primarily students, the recording is a legal, commercially obtained copy, and no profit is gained. There is no need for a public performance license within this context.
Showing films and videos outside the classroom requires a license. UFV has an annual feature film site license with two distributors: Audio Cine Film and Criterion Pictures.
More information on both of these, including when and how they apply, is available from the Audiovisual section of the Copyright Guide.
