To Book a Film:

To show a film publicly outside of a scheduled class at a recognized institution, a public performance license is required. For quotes on public performance licenses, please call us at 800.603.1104. These rights are for on-site use only by the license. Public Performance:

All bookings must be made by a phone call or by email correspondence (milefilms@gmail.com) to negotiate terms and to make sure a print is available. An order is only finalized when Milestone sends a written confirmation, it is signed by the exhibitor, and this is received by Milestone. 

Many of the film listings include terms. These terms may be negotiable upon request, depending on individual situations. If admission is charged, the guarantee is versus 50% of gross admissions - whichever is greater.

Please call for classroom rates. These rates apply to scheduled classes at recognized institutions where only students registered for that specific class can attend. Fees:

At the time you book the film, we send you a confirmation. Please read this over carefully, sign it, and return it to Milestone along with a purchase order from your institution (if possible). We will not ship out any print without a signed confirmation and/or an official purchase order. In some cases, we may stipulate prepayment in advance of shipping. Orders & Payment:

Prints are shipped insured for their cost via Federal Express or UPS and must be returned the same way or an equivalent method. Do not ship prints back via US Mail unless specifically allowed by Milestone before shipping. Exhibitor pays shipping both ways. Shipping and handling charges for outgoing prints appear on your invoice. The immediate return of all prints is your responsibility. Shipping:

all 16mm and 35mm prints should be returned insured for $1,000 to:

An Explanation of Rights and Limitations for Home and Institutional Purchasers

Individuals and institutions purchasing at the DVD rate are authorized to use the films ONLY for private home video screening and legitimate classroom use (a regularly scheduled class with an instructor present), per the United States Copyright Law. 
Educational institutions who wish to use DVDs or DVD-Rs for open screenings need to purchase at the Institutional Rate with Public Performance Rights and 3-Year Streaming. Any continuous screenings within a museum exhibition must be licensed separately through Milestone.
An open screening is defined as any screening, profit or non-profit — whether or not admission is charged — where the screening is open to the public or to individuals not enrolled in the specific class or course. Here are some good sites that explains just what public performance entails and the rights you have for these kind of screenings.
Exhibitors and institutions who wish to screen a DVD or DVD-R they already own in an open showing, must purchase a public performance license directly from Milestone. Please contact us.
US and Canadian institutions purchasing DVDs and DVD-Rs at institutional prices also acquire a three-year streaming license in addition to public performance rights. The public performance license allows on-site screening only. This streaming license is for a term of three years from the date of purchase and grants the purchasing institution the right to stream over a single secure server with a password-protected connection. Streaming access must be strictly limited to currently enrolled students and active faculty and staff with the school or organization. Streaming rights extensions can be negotiated with Milestone after the initial three-year term has lapsed. Milestone retains the right to terminate this agreement at any time. No broadcast, Internet or other rights are granted or implied.
