Public Performance Rights (PPR) for Films at Kenyon: Distributors With Included PPR

Find answers here to your questions about public performance rights (PPR) for film screenings at Kenyon. You will find information about Kenyon-owned material, as well as information on other resources that may be available to you.


Most of the films for which Kenyon paid for public performance rights are distributed by one of the vendors listed in the column at right.  Others may be available, so you should always consult the CONSORT catalog for more information.  It is also a good idea to double check on the status of any film distributed through a vendor from whom we usually purchase PPR as there may be exceptions. (i.e., If the library purchased a film by Women Make Movies through a vendor other than Women Make Movies itself, the library's copy may not inculde public performance rights.  The library typically purchases films directly from the distributor, but there are exceptions.)


The library holds public performance rights for most of the films that it has purchased from the following distributors.  Please note that there may be exceptions amongst these; you should consult the CONSORT catalog for full details.
