Pricing is now available for the renewal for the Feature Film Public Performance Rights (PPR) license from Audio-Cine Films (ACF).

The PPR licence includes the following options:

  • For all institutions, Entertainment PPR to cover the showing of films on campus outside the classroom, e.g. a student club's movie night; and
  • For for-profit institutions only, Educational PPR to cover the showing of films in the classroom.



Audio Cine Films offers public performance rights licenses covering Education and Entertainment use. With the corresponding licenses from Criterion Pictures, BC ELN partner libraries can obtain rights covering almost all of the major US and Canadian studios and production companies and many independent producers and foreign films.

The Entertainment licence covers on-campus screenings outside of the classroom, and is not limited to libraries or faculty. See the ACF ffPPR: Entertainment page for details, including specific rights and limitations.

The Education licence covers screenings for educational purposes within for-profit institutions. Non-profit institutions do not require an Education license. See the ACF ffPPR: Education page for details.


Response Instructions

To RENEW, no response is required from current subscribers as listed above. To CANCEL, libraries should contact BC ELN by the response deadline.
