What are the screening/viewing options?

  • Host a single night screening event. This rental option allows you to host a single, public (PPR) screening of the film to an audience of your choice. Your screening fee will be determined by whether or not you are charging for tickets. If you are screening for an audience of larger than 250, please fill out our Request a Quote form to receive a price quote for your screening. Because you are renting the film, you will generally receive a return shipping label to return the DVD or Blu-ray after your screening.
  • If you are an educational institution, you can also purchase the film for your school or organization and host a screening at any time, as often as you like. With this option, educational institutions can purchase both the film along with the PPR (Public Performance Rights) for the film. This means you can keep the DVD add it to your collection, and show it publicly in the future. Streaming license purchases are for 1-year, 3-year or life of file purchase for classroom use only (no PPR).

  • All screening options and more information can be found on the Tugg website. If you have any questions about which license is right for you, please complete the Request a Quote form and a member of the Tugg team will get back to you shortly.
