Screening Rights

If you want to show a film publicly, you must request the screening and pay screening rights. These costs are determined on the basis of the type of screening, the number of spectators and the possible entrance fee. You can download a complete overview here: Tarieven vertoningen 2020

Small, private screenings without promotion

    These are small-scale screenings for associations and local groups, for members and sympathizers, with no or very limited advertising (internal only). It doesn't necessarily have to be free.

    The minimum rate is € 30 per film screening (up to 20 spectators). Fixed rates apply for up to 66 spectators. From 67 spectators the rate will be € 1.5 per spectator.

    Public screenings

      When public promotion is carried out (press, social media, internet, posters, flyers,…), we work with a statement of income (45%) with a minimum rate of € 100 to 66 spectators. From 67 spectators, the minimum rate will be € 1.5 per spectator.

      Outdoor screenings

      Outdoor screenings that are organized on a smaller scale (max 150 spectators) pay 45% of the income, with a minimum guarantee of € 150.

      For large-scale outdoor screenings (more than 150 spectators) you pay 45% of the income, with a minimum guarantee of € 300.

      Screening License

      From 5 screenings per year, in addition to the copyright per screening, users must apply for a license (€ 50) for publicly showing DVDs or Blu-rays. Other users are considered casual users.

      If you have not applied for a screening permit in the current year and have organized 5 or more screenings, you will receive a settlement at the end of the year.


          For public screenings, the organizer can also be charged SABAM (for the copyrights Music in the film). Bevrijdingsfilms can arrange this on demand at the fixed rate of € 11 per film screening.

          Of course the displayer can take care of SABAM himself, but our experience shows that this usually turns out to be more expensive. Bevrijdingsfilms cannot be held responsible for non-compliance with the obligation.

          In primary and highschool, SABAM is not compulsory in class.

          Display Equipment

          You can also contact Bevrijdingsilms for screening material. You can rent the material from us, but you can also call on us to ensure that the screening runs smoothly from A to Z. You can download a complete overview of our material here: Tarieven materiaal
