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. Typical STSL customers include film societies or community cinemas, PTAs, Outdoor Festivals and Art Centres. With this licence, and subject to approval, customers are able to charge ticket admission and advertise their screenings.

Take advantage of our 'Special Release' titles. You can show a film from as early as 8-12 weeks after the UK cinema release date and before the Home Entertainment release date.

Filmbankmedia's catalogue includes over 13,000 films. Discover our full catalogue here.

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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Themed activities which are directly linked to the films are not permitted. Examples of themed activities include the use of characters, scene re-enactment, live music performances and any other activities that use elements from the film.
