Single Title Screening Licence

Apply for licence

The Single Title Screening Licence (STSL) allows the screening of films on a Title-by-Title basis to audiences in a range of venues and establishments across the UK.

Whether indoor or outdoor, commercial (charged ticketed admission) or non-commercial (free of charge to view), film screenings are a great way to bring communities together and offer excellent fundraising and revenue generating opportunities. Typical STSL customers include film societies or community cinemas, PTAs, Outdoor Festivals and Art Centres. 

Prices start from £83 + VAT per film and a full price list is available here. Alternatively please visit our Licensing Options and Pricing page for more information.

Filmbankmedia represent many of the leading Hollywood, Bollywood and Independent film studios and distributors including Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Universal Studios and Paramount Pictures. Click here for a full list of participating studios and distributors for the STSL.

'Early Release' (pre-DVD) films - part of our extensive library of movies available for screenings

The most attractive part of the STSL is our ‘early release’ option. You can show a film from as little as 8-12 weeks after the UK Cinema release date and before the Home Entertainment release date.

There is also the option to acquire DVDs or Blu-rays for screenings from local retailers, using your own personal collection or use Filmbankmedia’s film distribution service.

Ensure your venue is licensed to screen films

Under UK copyright law, screenings films to audiences outside of the cinema or home for entertainment purposes requires a licence from the copyright owner or their representatives (such as Filmbankmedia) before doing so.
