The State pays a flat fee for FOD - all films available to us are free to use. However, films are culled twice annually by FOD. All faculty will be notified of deleted titles when the Library is alerted. If a title you use is on the list, tell Christina & she will try to license it for you.


Videos from FOD include public performance rights that allow them to be used in the educational setting. 


Videos are closed captioned and transcripts are provided.
