Licensing Process

Movie events are a great way to engage, entertain and enrich your community. Planning a movie event is easy and Swank Motion Pictures is here to help make it a huge success.


Licensing fees vary depending on several factors including movie, screening location and anticipated crowd size. To get started, we prefer that you Request A Quote a minimum of 2-3 weeks prior to your event. Once you are ready to proceed with licensing, you can complete and send back the Exhibition Request Form. We will follow up to confirm that the requested movie is available on the date of your screening. Once your screening is licensed, an invoice will be emailed to you. Checks, purchase orders and all major credits cards are accepted.


Promoting your screening is key to having a great turnout. Our Account Executives are full of ideas on successfully promoting community events. Additionally, we offer free customizable publicity materials available for download on the Promote Your Movie page. You may begin promoting your event once you receive confirmation of the movie license which will be sent to you 1 business day after your order is placed.


Your movie(s) will arrive at least 2 business days before the event. We recommend that you preview the movie in its entirety to ensure compatibility with your equipment. You may choose to obtain your own copy of the movie for your screening instead of renting it via Swank.


Please return the movie(s) 1 business day following your screening. Feel free to send us any photos, comments and/or feedback from your event. We’d love to hear from you!

For any additional questions, please Contact Us. Our experienced Account Executives can assist with all aspects of planning including help with selecting the most popular movies how to fund your event, locating equipment, promotional materials and event ideas.
