  • Streaming License

    We are currently offering 1 and 3 year streaming subscriptions for our collection through our new digital portal, Film Platform. Similar to other streaming providers, we use your IP Address, proxy server, etc to create a custom streaming page for your university. From there you can embed the streaming page into your library system (we provide MARC records), course webpages, etc.

    We are offering a number of different pricing models, to find a solution that suits each different institution. These include:

    - A la Carte purchases of individual titles (a great option if you are only interested in one or two titles)

    - Collection subscriptions (with significant pricing reductions for multiple titles)

    - Patron Driven Acquisitions (whereby you only pay for what is actually used)

    Here’s a short demo of the platform, using another one of our popular titles (A Place at the Table) as an example of how each title on Film Platform can be accessed, used, shared, and featured on your campus.

    For a single title a-la-carte purchase, pricing is as follows:

    1 Year Streaming License: $225

    3 Year Streaming License: $375

    You can purchase these licenses directly through each title's page. Upon receipt of the order, we will then follow up to obtain the necessary information (IP Address, etc) to get your streaming page up and running!

    And if you are interested in one of our enhanced licensing options (full collection, PDA), please contact Kristin Cooney directly at kristin@rocofilms.com.

  • Educational License

    Thank you for your interest in bringing ro*co films to your institution. Whether you are wanting to enhance your curriculum with top-tier media content or host a screening event for your community, we are here to help.
    We curate specifically for the educational market, selecting from hundreds of submissions to release only a large handful of films each year. We produce each educational edition with the highest standards of quality in mind, from the production of our DVDs to the creation of the supplemental written materials.

    What does an Educational Edition include?


    On each film’s page, you will usually see two types of Educational Edition available - The Institutional & Public Viewing Edition and a K-12 Edition.

    The Institutional & Public Viewing Edition typically includes the following:

    An unlimited public performance license for a single campus or institution (this is necessary for ANY screening, of any size, happening outside of a private residence)

    DVD containing the feature film

    When available, we will always include a shorter version of the film and/or chapterized sections of the film on the same DVD, to make it easier to use shorter video elements for classroom instruction or discussion.

    Closed Captioning or English Descriptive Subtitles are ALWAYS included

    Discussion and/or Curriculum Guides - delivered electronically

    Screening Kit (poster artwork, stills, press kit, etc) - delivered electronically

    The K-12 Edition typically includes all of the same content and materials as the Institutional & Public Viewing Edition, but the usage must be limited to small K-12 classroom instruction ONLY.

    If you are planning an assembly screening, a public event, or a parent showing of a film, then public performance rights are required and therefore the Institutional & Public Viewing Edition must be purchased.


    Libraries

    Students

    Students are such a vital part of bringing these important stories to schools and campuses across the globe!
    In order to host a screening on your campus, you simply need to purchase an Institutional & Public Viewing Edition to have all necessary rights to do so. You are welcome to purchase a copy yourself (or on behalf of your student group) or you can always submit a simple request through your campus library!

    Submit a request to your campus library

    This is such an easy way to bring a film to your campus without having to use your own funds. Simply call or walk into your campus library, ask for a media librarian, and tell them that you would like to host a screening of a film on campus and need help securing the public performance rights. They will be used to the higher institutional pricing and are almost always willing to purchase media that is requested by students, faculty, or staff! If helpful, please contact us and we would be happy to connect you directly with a media librarian on your campus that we have worked with in the past.

    Consider partnering with another student group, faculty member, or organization for your event

    This can be a great way to expand the audience for your event, enhance the programming associated (like a Q&A afterwards, panel, etc), get help with logistics, and even to get assistance with funding!

    Invite a film representative to attend your screening

    Having a filmmaker attend your event can be a wonderful way to draw a larger crowd, get the inside scoop behind making the film, and also to get any updates or resources around the issue tackled in the film. Contact us to learn more!

    Educators

    Educators are often a key force behind illuminating important issues, driving conversation, and expanding students views beyond the boundaries of their own experience. At ro*co, we strive to give you as many tools as possible to make facilitating that process a success!

    Consider the format

    Would you prefer to use a DVD, or would it be easier to offer in streaming format?

    If a DVD works best, then you will simply need to purchase one of our Educational Editions (description above). Pricing varies by title and can be obtained on each individual film’s page.

    If you are interested in digital access, you might want to consider pursuing a streaming subscription to one (or many!) titles through our exclusive streaming portal, Film Platform.
    Access is easy. We use your IP Address, proxy server, etc to create a custom streaming page for your institution. From there you can embed the streaming page into your library system (we provide MARC records), course webpages, etc.

    We are offering a number of different pricing models, to find a solution that suits each different institution. These include:

    - A la Carte purchases of individual titles (a great option if you are only interested in one or two titles)

    - Collection subscriptions (with significant pricing reductions for multiple titles)

    - Patron Driven Acquisitions (whereby you only pay for what is actually used)

    Here’s a short demo of the platform, using another one of our popular titles (A Place at the Table) as an example of how each title on Film Platform can be accessed, used, shared, and featured on your campus.

    For a single title, pricing is as follows:

    1 Year Streaming License: $225

    3 Year Streaming License: $375


    Submit a request to your campus library

    Whether you are interesting in DVD or streaming format, we encourage you to submit a request to your campus library for help with funding. They are used to the higher institutional pricing and almost always willing to purchase media that is requested by faculty or staff for instructional or screening use. If helpful, please contact us and we would be happy to connect you directly with a media librarian on your campus who has supported types types of purchases in the past.

     

  • Community License

    At ro*co films, we believe that documentary film is the perfect medium to inspire action around any number of social, political or environmental issues that we face today.

     

    Be the change-maker. Host public screening of a ro*co film to start the conversation in your community.

    We've made it easy! When you purchase a film from us, that purchase includes all necessary licensing to be able to show the film outside of your private residence. This license (aka public performance rights) is exactly what you need to legally show a film and avoid violating any copyright regulations.


    Host a free event, or charge admission. We understand that charging a ticket price can sometimes be necessary to offset the cost of hosting a screening.


    If you do charge admission, you can use the funds from your screening to benefit local non-profits or groups who are helping make a difference, or even keep the proceeds!

     

    Ignite discussion and inspire action. Most ro*co film packages include extensive discussion guides, action items, resources related to the issues presented in the film, educational curriculum materials, and marketing deliverables such as poster artwork, stills, and press kit. Use these to make the most out of your event!

     

    Give the GIFT of powerful film


    If you aren’t interested in hosting a screening yourself, but you see the value in showing a particular film in an instructional or public setting, we encourage you to donate a ro*co film to a local school or organization! This is a great way to educate and activate your community around an important topic without having to facilitate an event yourself. If you have a school or org in mind, perfect. If not, please contact Kristin Cooney at kristin@rocofilms.com to match your donation with a school or org in need.
