Films for Faculty

How it works:

The Office of Student Activities would like to help you enhance the classroom experience by providing film screenings to WCU students.  Any time a film is shown in public University space (classroom, resident hall lounge, or common area at the University), the screening is the equivalent to showing them in a theater and certain copyrights must be attained.  Movie rentals and streaming services are intended for private use/home viewing, not public screenings. 

            Sometimes the process of securing film screening rights can be difficult to navigate.  In addition, public screenings cost money.  Films can range from $200-$400 for independent and older films and $700-$1000 for wide releases that have yet to make it to DVD.  That’s why the Office of Student Activities has initiated the Films for Faculty program.

            We want to do the work for you.  If you have a film in mind, contact us and we will see if it is available*.  We will discuss a date and time for your film screening, and the Student Activities staff will book Sykes Theater for you, contact the film company to secure the rights, and even pay for it!  All that we ask is (a) the film is open to all students and (b) you keep a record of how many students attend the screening.

            This initiative was created to fulfill tenets of the Academic theme of the Strategic Plan by “enhancement of the student learning process and services that support that process.”  Please note that funding is limited per fiscal year and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Barrett McGee, Associate Director of Student Activities, at
