Single Event Licenses


Sometimes, even with Movie Licensing USA's incredible list of studios, there is a film you want to show from a small or independent studio that isn't covered by your annual license. In that case, you will need a single-event license. For the first time ever, CLC is partnering with Movie Licensing USA/Swank to offer deep discounts on single event licenses for libraries that already purchase the Movie Licensing annual license.


Price: $118 each for any single event independent title.


To order: Contact Joe Swift at Movie Licensing - CLC membership will be verified.
