I recall that there has been discussion on the list
about how educational institutions can rent 16mm and
35mm prints of otherwise unavailable films from the
Japan Foundation. Do any of you have an e-mail address
at the Foundation that I could contact to get this
process started? I work on a volunteer basis with the
Green Bay Film Society, and we are interested in
introducing the riches of classic Japanese cinema to
our viewers.

Along the same lines, for those Japanese films that
are available on DVD (mainly through Criterion,
although I have noticed the availability of some
titles from Image and Milestone as well), does one
obtain public projection rights from the DVD company
itself? We are keenly interested in showing Ozu's Good
Morning in Spring 2005. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit
corporation; our screenings take place at a public
museum and we do not charge admission. We do advertise
the titles of the films that we are showing.

Thank you all in advance for your collective wisdom on
these topics.
