Film Platform

From the vendor:

ro*co films is a leader in the documentary distribution world, with an educational division aimed at bringing these compelling real-life stories to schools, libraries, and other instructional environments across the country.

Two different licence types are available for ro*co films: streaming, and public performance (PPR). A streaming licence includes access to the online Film Platform, and permits on-site classroom screening as well as individual use both on and off-campus. The PPR licence includes DVD ownership for library circulation for individual use as well as perpetual rights for and on-site screenings (including for extra-curricular purposes). The two licence types can be bundled together.

On the Film Platform, content can be acquired on an à la carte basis or as a complete collection. The vendor also offers a PDA subscription model.

For PPR licensing only, and for information about the PDA subscription model, please contact the vendor directly. Otherwise, OCLS can assist wish subscriptions to the Film Platform.
