Welcome to our UK STSL FAQs. Should you not find the answer you need, please do not hesitate to contact us.
What does STSL mean?
The Single Title Screening Licence (STSL) is one of the licence options available on a per film title per screening basis.
How do I open an STSL account?
To apply for an STSL account, follow our 5-step guide here.
What is the £150 security deposit for and when do I get this back?
This is a holding fee to activate your STSL account and is fully refundable upon account closure (subject to all rental films returned and invoices paid).
Can I use my £150 deposit towards my licence fee?
The deposit and licence fee are kept completely separate from each other, as your deposit is fully refunded when the account is closed. However, should you wish to discuss applying your deposit to outstanding invoices, please contact us at CreditControl@filmbankmedia.com.
Do I need a different account for indoor and outdoor screenings?
No, you only need one STSL account for both indoor and outdoor screenings. However, please note that the booking process differs from outdoor to indoor screenings. Please refer to the Outdoor section below.
Can I edit my existing booking online?
Yes. You can do this by logging into your online account and select ‘Edit Bookings/Enter Returns’ button. Select the ‘pencil’ icon and make your amendments. For all amendments relating to past screenings or reducing the number of screenings, please contact us at email@example.com as soon as possible.
How do I change my contact details online?
Once you have logged in, please select ‘Amend Contact Details’ which can be located on the right hand side. Should you wish to change your organisation name or login email address, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I need a licence for my film screenings, even if I’m not charging?
Yes, you will still require a licence. Any screening taking place outside of the home or cinema requires a licence under UK copyright law. In this instance, your licence will be granted under one of our non-commercial (free-of-charge to view) terms instead of commercial (charged ticket admission).

Once I have placed a booking how do I know it has been approved?
Please allow one working day for your booking to be approved. To check your booking status, select 'Edit Booking/Enter Returns'. Should your status say 'Approved', you are fine to proceed with your screening. If your status has not changed to 'Approved' after one working day, please contact email@example.com.
