■  CALIFORNIA NEWSREEL DIGITAL LICENSING

This page is designed so instructors and media librarians can easily determine which California Newsreel titles are available for which digital licensing options and from which distributers. Over the past two years, California Newsreel has worked to obtain digital rights for over 150 of the most widely-used titles from our 46 years of distributing social change media. Many of these are classics for which no comparable film exists and were in danger of becoming technologically extinct. Newsreel intends to add both old and new releases regularly to this growing list; as we do, they will be incorporated in this page.

■  DIGITAL LICENSING OPTIONS

1) DVD + 3 Year Site/Local Streaming Licenses available only from California Newsreel.  This license includes a DVD (or in the case of the Furious Flower collections a file set) with the right to encode an unlimited number of digital streaming files to use in serving videos for 3 years from the purchase date of the license to registered students, staff and faculty in perpetuity. For the full terms of this license click here.

2) Video-on-Demand / Remote Streaming Subscriptions for individual titles are available through our distribution partners Alexander Street Press and Kanopy Streaming Films Media Group offers collections which include California Newsreel titles. Subscriptions should be purchased directly from these content providers which will allow California Newsreel titles to be fully integrated with other subscriptions purchased from these sources. Many Newsreel titles are also included in the large, moving image databases of Films Media Group and Alexander Street Press.  Please note: all titles are not available from all three content providers.

3) Digital Rentals are currently available for a limited number of titles for home, individual student viewing and faculty preview only through Vimeo priced between $1.99 and 4.99 for series.  We will be rolling out more digital rental titles throughout the 2014-2015 academic year.

■  HOW TO USE OUR DIGITAL LICENSING MATRIX

In the matrix below, the left-hand column lists all California Newsreel titles currently available for digital delivery. The five columns to the right of these titles correspond with the digital licensing sources outlined above: 1) California Newsreel (DVD + 3 Year Site / Local Streaming Licenses)  2) Films Media Group  3) Alexander Street Press  4) Kanopy Streaming (individual title Video-on-Demand / Remote Streaming Subscriptions)  and  5) Vimeo (Digital Rentals). A  marked box in the matrix indicates that the title to its left is available from the source at the top of its column. By clicking on a marked box you will navigate directly to the page for that title on the website of the particular distributor for the  license, subscription or rental you have chosen; this  in no way commits you to purchasing that  title.
