Films at RRU Library

Accessing RRU-licensed film collections and information on showing films at RRU.

Showing films on campus

Canadian copyright law allows in-person screening of legally acquired films
for educational purposes. The law allows RRU instructors and faculty to
show these documentaries and feature films in the classroom as part of a course. Typically, screenings for entertainment purposes require permission.

Learn more about course clearances for videos.

If you are considering screening a film for an RRU class or event, please contact the Copyright Office.
