All of our films are available on DVD and have closed captions. You may also purchase a DSL (digital site license) along with the DVD as a value package.
There are three easy and convenient ways to purchase any of our films: online, fax, or email.
Order DVDs and DSL (digital site licenses) online with your credit card, purchase order (institutions only for orders of $300 or more) or via PayPal using our secure shopping cart.
ORDER BY FAX OR EMAIL:
Send us your purchase order to this fax number: (212) 924-4121 or send us an email with your purchase order to: email@example.com.
All orders must be accompanied by an institutional purchase order or payment. Payment may be made by institutional check, money order, or all major credit cards. Sorry, no personal checks are accepted.
We offer all of our institutional buyers, programmers and members of the press free online previews for all of our films. Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your inquiry and we will send you the link and password to watch the film online.
We are required by law to collect sales tax for all orders shipped to New York State. If your order is going to be shipped to an address in NY, please make sure you enter that information when you place your order with our shopping cart system.
If you are a New York accredited tax exempt organization, you must fax, email, or mail us your ST-119 (http://www.tax.ny.gov/pdf/current_forms/st/st119_2_fill_in.pdf) tax exempt form. If we do not have this on file, we must charge you sales tax.
Sales tax charges will not be reimbursed after the invoice has been paid, so please send us the form at the time you place your order. If you have already submitted your form, it will be kept on file for future use.
All of our films are available for public screenings. If you would like to request a preview copy for a public screening or need additional information, please send an inquiry to: email@example.com.
If you are interested in having a commercial screening by charging admission, please send your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
COMMUNITY GROUP DISCOUNTS:
If you are an activist organization, community group, church, or other organization, and want to use the film for educational purposes within your organization, you must purchase the non-commercial Public Performance Rights (PPR).
If you have a limited budget and cannot afford the non-commercial Public Performance Rights (PPR), please tell us about your organization and how you’d like to use the film. It is important to us that our films be used as educational tools; therefore, we will try to work as closely as possible with you. Please send your inquiry to email@example.com.
DOMESTIC SHIPPING CHARGES:
1 DVD = $7 flat. For each additional DVD add $3.
For example: 2 DVDs would be $10; 3 DVDs will be $13; 4 DVDs will be $16; 5 DVDs will be $19 and 6 DVDs will be $22.
Please note: The Su Friedrich Collection (14 films on 6 DVDs) will count as 6 DVDs so the shipping charge will be $22.
All international orders must be prepaid by credit card or via PayPal in US Dollars. Additional shipping fees for international orders will apply. Please add $25 for the first title and $8 for each additional title.
If you receive a damaged DVD, we will replace it at no cost within the first 30 days of purchase. All tapes and DVDs must be returned prior to replacement or credit.
Please note: DVDs will sometimes be dislodged from their case when shipping. This does not necessarily mean that they are defective. Please carefully check your DVD before sending it back to us for replacement.
COPYRIGHT AND USAGE INFORMATION:
At Outcast Films, we believe honesty is the best policy. We will be honest with you in explaining how and when our films can be used and, in return, we trust that you will be honest with us when purchasing our titles.
PUBLIC PERFORMANCE RIGHTS vs. HOME VIDEO:
Public Performance Rights (PPR) are the legal rights to show a film in public. According to U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17, United States Code, Section 110), a public performance is any screening of a film that occurs outside of the home, or at any place where people are gathered who are not family members, such as in a school, library, auditorium, classroom or meeting room.
Unless DVDs are sold or rented with public performance rights or are licensed for public performance, they should be considered home use only and should be restricted to private showings in the home to a “normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances.”
The U.S. Copyright Law contains an exception (Section 110, 1) that allows for the lawful showing of home use only DVDs within a classroom. This is the face-to-face teaching exemption allowing instructors to show DVDs in a classroom for teaching purposes only and not recreation or entertainment. This exemption allows classroom use of video programs that have not been cleared for public performance if, and only if, all of the conditions set forth by the law are met.
Teachers may purchase copyrighted films at the Home Video price to use in their classrooms only by meeting all of the following teaching exemption conditions.
- The performance must be viewed by instructors or by pupils.
- The performance is in connection with face-to-face teaching activities.
- The entire audience is involved in the teaching activity.
- The entire audience is in the same room or same general area.
- The teaching activities are conducted in a non-profit education
- The performance takes place in a classroom or similar place devoted
STREAMING/ONLINE ACCESS INFORMATION
Outcast Films offers streaming licenses in perpetuity after the purchase of a film(s) at full list price from the licensing institution.
Copyright law, including the teacher exemption, does not apply to streaming films and online access.
If you would like to stream the film into your classroom or within your company, you must purchase the DSL (digital site license).
TERMS OF DSL:
- The licensing institution must purchase a fully licensed copy of the film(s) for their permanent collection at list price.
- The licensing institution can encode a digital file in any file format. Content may not be altered or edited in any manner. Digitized material is for synchronous (live) or asynchronous streaming (multiple user, videoÂon-demand format) only and content may not be copied to any other format or used for any purpose not outlined in this agreement.
- The licensing institution must guarantee a password-protected environment without the ability of a user to download the program. Licensees may then deliver the contents of these files via password-protected digital streaming only to registered students, accredited researchers, faculty and staff of that institution and the occasional or walk-in user.
- The licensing institution may video stream content only for students in an educational setting (i.e. for non-paying audiences only).
All PPR and DSL are in perpetuity.
United States Copyright Law protects all film and media distributed by Outcast Films.
Duplication, reproduction, alteration, television broadcast, cablecast, loaning for a fee, leasing, sublicensing to others or use for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited without written permission from Outcast Films.
