Showing Film Scenes at Events
If you are interested in showing films at your event or conference, you may need to obtain permission from the copyright owner.
This is because pre-recorded videos and DVDs that you can buy or rent from shops are only intended for personal home use, not public viewing such as in a church building, conference centre etc.
As CCLI is an agent to Christian Video Licensing International (CVLI) you don't need to contact every copyright owner each time you would like to show a film in your church. Just follow the simple steps below:
- Check that the producers are covered by the licence scheme.
- Choose which licensing option you need.
- Apply now!
If your event has more than 1,000 people attending please contact us.
