Public Performance Licensing

So you are interested in learning more about public performance licensing. Below are answers to the most frequently asked questions. If your question is not answered below, please use the ‘Contact Us’ link to ask your question.

What is a public performance?
Any screening of a film outside of a residential home environment is classified as a public performance. 

Can I use a copy of the film I purchased or rented?
Yes. A license purchased from the copyright holder will extend the home license contained in the cost of your existing copy so that you can use it for public performance.

How much does a license cost? 

Please contact carly.dowson@foxnz.co.nz for a quote.


Are there any other costs involved?
Yes. Under the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act 1993, you are required to display a copy of the film classification at the screening. To obtain a copy, you need to apply to the Film and Video Labelling Body (FVLB) for a certificate. The current cost is $45 plus GST. Please contact the FVLB on enquiries@fvlb.org.nz if you want to take your enquiry further.

Is there a catalogue to choose from?
There is no catalogue to choose from. If you are unsure if the film you want to license belongs to Fox, please contact carly.dowson@foxnz.co.nz to check with us before making a request for a license. Alternatively, use the web site Internet Movie Data base (IMDB) and lookup the ‘Company’ details.

How long does it take?
Allow a minimum of 7 days for the process.  Your license will be sent to you as soon as your payment is received.
