We receive many requests by people looking to rent films which they can show at events. Unfortunately we do not rent films to the general public. Not that long ago there were distributors all over the country renting 16mm and 35mm prints of motion pictures, documentaries, and non-fiction films to the public. That was then.
If you have an event and want a film to show, find out who made the film. You can do this by checking out a movie guide or one of the intenet movie databases and finding out both the producing company and the distributor. These are the people to call. If they don't rent prints of their films, they will know who to contact. If you know the distributor, you might try our guide to film rental distributors. Most of the ones we know of rent only silent movies. But we've included many of the studio numbers and contacts to help you find the people who can help you.
