The Representation Project currently licenses rights to their films, including Miss Representation, for screenings. They are now seeking assistance reviewing/updating their short (two page) template film license agreements. The four agreements largely use the same language, with minor variations to account for screenings in the following settings: (i) corporate; (ii) community (iii) single classroom; and (iv) entire school. In addition to reviewing the licenses, they would appreciate assistance combining the terms into a single agreement where appropriate.
