Institutional Sales

Institutional prices are for organizations such as universities, colleges, and government agencies purchasing films in digital or physical formats. Special pricing is available for public libraries, K-12, and community groups. Purchase effectively means lease for the life of the format. Prices include public performance rights for organizational or library use by the acquiring institution for non-paying audiences only. See License Agreement for full terms. Sales are shipped to arrive within seven (7) business days. For faster shipping, a $25 rush charge will apply. **Please specify the date needed. Standard DVDs are region-free and will play in most international players. Some of our older titles are special order in DVD or digital format. If this is the case, you will be notified of the proposed shipping date within a week of the order.

Additional formats: Blu Rays, digital files, and PAL formats may be available on some titles as a special order. Please note that special orders will take 4-8 weeks to fulfill and may result in additional charges. Please call (212) 925-0606 ext. 3600 for more information.

Institutional Rentals

Rental orders must be placed at least three (3) weeks before the show date or rush charges will apply. We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs, however, an alternate show date at least two weeks later must be provided. Prices are for a three-day period within a classroom or organization for non-paying audiences only. Rental fees can be applied to the purchase price if purchase is made within 90 days of rental show date. If you wish to charge admission for your screening of a WMM title, see public exhibition instructions below.

K-12 Schools, Public Libraries & Select Groups

Women Make Movies is a 501(c)(3) non-profit feminist media organization. As part of our mission, we offer special rates of up to 75% off the full list price on sales to all K-12 schools and public libraries as well as select community-based groups that provide direct service or advocacy and work with an annual operating budget of $350K or less. (Documentation of annual budget may be required). Purchase effectively means lease for the life of the format and includes in-house public performance rights for non-paying audiences only. Please inquire for fundraisers or any open & advertised events. Since rentals are not discounted below the institutional rate and the low-cost sale price is generally comparable, we encourage the sale option whenever possible. Sorry, we cannot offer this discount to any university-affiliated programs.

Digital Site Licenses (DSL)

Women Make Movies offers Digital Site Licenses (DSL) for the life of the file format and includes public performance rights. After your order is received, a digital file will be delivered within three (3) business days. Special Terms apply. The licensing institution must host the film on a secure, password-protected platform. Transcripts and caption files will be delivered when available. Provided that no caption file exists, the licensing institution is authorized to add pop-on or closed-captioning to digital file. Please be aware, there is a $10 handling fee per digital site license for file creation and delivery.
