Theatrical Showings and Broadcast sales

Please contact Nancy Fishman at nancy@fishmanfilm.com for theatrical, festival and all public screenings (outside of a classroom).

Several of the titles we distribute are available for sale to domestic and international broadcasters. Please inquire if you are interested in considering one of our titles for broadcast.

Public Performances

Any screening that does not take place in the confines of a home or a classroom is considered a public/theatrical showing. Prices for public exhibition in theaters, museums, cultural institutions, community groups and college campuses (outside of a classroom) are based on venue size, ticket price and number of screenings. To request a quote for a public screening, please email nancy@fishmanfilm.com with the following information: Name of your institution and venue, title of the film, number of screenings per film, admission price and seating capacity. Please inquire for rates for public showings where admission is charged, even within a university setting.

Institutional/Educational DVD sales

DVDs may be purchased for institutional and educational use (exhibition in a classroom when no admission fee is charged and the screening is open only to students, not to the general public). Purchases can be made by email, letter, or telephone, using purchase orders, checks or credit cards. We ship all DVDs after payment or a purchase order has been received. Terms are Net 30. Please see ordering contact info below.
