Our standard license for Film Festivals, Governmental Agencies, Universities, Educational Institutions, Conferences, National Non-Profits & For Profit Institutions
In order to screen Creating Woodstock (or any film), a public performance license (PPR) is required. A PPR is required for any public screening event—including if at your home if invited guests extend beyond your immediate family or what is considered “personal use”--even if you have a DVD or have purchased an On Demand option. Since there is a sizable expense to produce and distribute a film, as well as to administer these programs, screening fees help to allay these costs.
This PPR license is meant for a one-time public, non-admission screening events for up to 250 people arranged by governmental agencies, conferences, national non-profits and for-profit institutions. The $195 fee will need to be paid in full before your screening. If the attendance will exceed 250 people, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for pricing options.
With this option, no admission can be charged, however you can:
1) accept donations at the event to defray costs or
2) resell copies of the DVD (available for bulk purchase
at a significant discount).Standard Format:
DVD, included in the PPR license + shipping & handling
For international distribution rights, screening requests, and film festivals in all other territories, please contact Nadine Ellman at email@example.com

For three days in August 1969, nearly a half-million young people descended upon Max Yasgur's farm in upstate New York for the rock ‘n’ roll event that defined a generation. Mythologized for 50 years, the filmmakers set the record straight with "Creating Woodstock,” the most comprehensive examination of how the festival came to be using original interviews with key figures, rare archival footage and unearthed photographs.
The founders of Woodstock Ventures - John Roberts, Michael Lang, Joel Rosenman, and Artie Kornfeld—along with the best production talent on either coast, including John Morris, Bill Belmont, Mel Lawrence, and Chip Monck recall moments from the initial idea for the festival, to the search for a suitable site and then the race to build a venue, promote the event and, most importantly, book the bands.
Find out why the Grateful Dead wanted a “do over" and Crosby, Stills & Nash weren’t going to show up, why The Who refused to play and Jimi Hendrix almost didn’t make it, and how it turned into a free concert. Richie Havens, Arlo Guthrie, and Leslie West recount their experiences, including performing on a stage that nearly collapsed, and learn how a 15-year-old girl may have saved the festival from being shut down entirely!
