Licenses vary from $75 for a one-time showing at a school or public library, to $125 for a one-year rental by a school or public library to show as many times as desired, to $1090 for a non-profit to show in 10 locations for an undetermined period of time, and with various permutations in-between the price extremes.

Thank you Adrienne. I’m actually inquiring for a friend who is in Germany. She wants to view the documentary before she recommends it to local schools and can’t gain access anywhere. She has already tried worldcat with no luck. It isn’t available from Amazon in Germany either. If you have any more ideas, I would love to hear them!

Thanks again!

I want  do this for my not for profit agency  but there are no funds like that for  a movie. 

Hi Michelle,

Paper Tigers you can now rent through Amazon for like $1.99.  We did a gofundme campaign to rent Resilience and secure a large venue for its screening.  We raised over $3,000 in less than 48 hours.

I would advise you to try and connect with fellow community partners to plan a screening.  In my experience, that works much better for participation and investment.  It's also what the movement is about - reaching across lines to support one another.  Good luck!  Report back how it goes...we are rooting for you!  - Monadnock Thrives
