Do I really need to purchase a license?

Do I really need to purchase a license to show the film/films, can't I just use my personal subscription to stream the films?

Yes, yes you do - and no, no you can't. Keep this in mind when deciding if you need to purchase a license: if you plan to show the film anywhere other than your own home, you are legally obligated to purchase the appropriate package and license for your institution. We do keep an eye on all purchases to make sure things are on the up and up, so please use your best judgement when purchasing your license to be sure we don't run into an embarrassing, and problematic situation.

Where does my money go?

We are the Bureau of Creative Works, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the support of independent filmmakers, education, and outreach. We have produced 12 independent short film that began a monthly premiere schedule in July of 2016. All of the proceeds from our sales go directly into continuing to provide a monthly grant of $1500 to an indie filmmaker to produce an original short film, producing new content to accompany our films, and distributing it to you. As independent filmmakers, we rely on your support to continue the Bureau ecosystem.
