Home and School Movie Nights
Audio Cine Films Inc. wants to ensure that all schools and parent associations in PEI are aware of the licensing requirements concerning the presentation of commercially available movies. Please review the e-mail message received  Nov. 1/18 pasted below and speak with your school’s teacher-librarian or principal who are your first contacts for questions about licensing.

November 1, 2018
Audio Cine Films Inc. is the exclusive Canadian public performance rights representative for Walt Disney Pictures, Pixar Animated Films, Marvel Studios, Universal Studios Canada, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Columbia Pictures, MGM Studios, Screen Gems, Sony Pictures Animation, TriStar, among many others. As such, we license numerous schools, parent associations and school boards across Canada, enabling them to legally present commercially available movies from the studios we represent.
As you are surely aware, all leisure public presentations of commercially available movies in schools must be licensed with a rights representative. This applies in all cases, even if films are obtained from personal collections, obtained from commercial retail stores, shown freely or for non-profit reasons.

We used to license PEI schools through an agreement with the PEI Department of Education, this license lapsed several years ago, and we wish to ensure that all schools and parent associations in PEI are aware of the licensing requirements concerning the presentation of commercially available movies for leisure purposes.
