Fees and Charges

Film Charges 
As a not for profit organisation, film screenings are an important source of funding for OPEN BETHLEHEM and we normally seek to make a charge related to use of the film.
Charges vary according to a number of factors, including the nature of the hosting organisation. In general, we seek:
  • Screening Fees – A fixed screening fee; and/or,
  • Box Office Takings  – A percentage of Box Office takings.

​These charges go towards covering our cost and the ongoing running of the organisation.

The minimum charge for a small community screening is £25 plus postage, which covers some of our costs. 

Speaker Charges
We also generally charge for any speaking engagements as follows: 
  • Speaking Fees – A fee for each occasion that the Film Maker (or any OB Speaker) is invited to speak, in most circumstances; 
  • Expenses – All reasonable expenses related to any speaking events, such as travel, accommodation and subsistence, etc., in all circumstances. 
​These charges go to the speaker to ensure that they or not out of pocket for any expenses incurred and in part recognition of their time spent in participating in the screening.
We also ask organisers to collect donations at all screenings. These funds go to supporting our on-going work, including new projects. 
Invoicing and Payment
All fees become due once the screening has taken place and have been invoiced. ​ Payment should be made by bank transfer as detailed on the invoice.
