The products in our Educational, Library and Institutional division are used by organizations and sell in relatively small numbers. To recoup the significant production costs and to help support our future independent filmmaking, we must charge a higher price per title. Additionally, most of our educational/institutional titles are accompanied by comprehensive study and discussion guides that have been produced with great care and expense. Our prices are similar to those of other comparable educational distributors. The higher price also includes educational rights, which are more extensive than those granted with home use sales and benefit a larger constituency.

Thank you for supporting independent media.
