The Big Studio Movie Licence has been in operation since 2009 providing a comprehensive copyright compliance solution for a range of organisations. Since that time we’ve assisted over 10,000 facilities with our blanket movie licence, providing blanket movie compliance coverage from the Hollywood Studios. Our purpose is twofold:
We're passionate about protecting the rights of the content creators, providing an avenue for creators to continue to do what they love, which is to create, thereby protecting the future of the industry. The film industry creates content that tells our local stories and brings us tales from overseas that entertain, educate, and bring us together. You might be surprised to find out how much the movie industry contributes to the Aus/NZ economies. Find out more here.
We're also passionate about the power of the story for all, and how life can be enriched and inspired through movie viewing. The Big Studio Movie Licence is the blanket copyright solution for both: protecting the future of film through content creation and the provision of blanket licensing coverage for legal viewing.

Copyright regulation for film is pretty straight forward. If you intend to screen a movie (or parts of a movie) outside of your home, you require approval and a licence from the Producer of the film in order to adhere to copyright law. Land Lease / Over 50’s Lifestyle / Retirement Communities / Residential Aged Care and Day Centre Facilities, Churches and Religious Institutions - are all venues that must carry an appropriate movie licence in order to screen movies to your community.
