We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the 4 Wheel Bob community screenings campaign! We invite you to experience this heartfelt and awe-inspiring new film with your community. 4 Wheel Bob is available for corporations, colleges and universities, community groups, organizations, K-12 schools, and public libraries.
Hosting a screening of 4 Wheel Bob offers a great opportunity to educate and inspire your community about disability rights, the healing power of nature and the importance of wilderness conservation. The film shows all of us, whatever our limitations, how to turn obstacles into positive challenges to embrace and surmount. We encourage you to plan a Q+A, panel presentation or group discussion after showing the film to advance the film’s message and to build community support around your goals and initiatives.

▷ When will 4 WHEEL BOB home-use DVDs be available for purchase?
DVDs for Home Use will be available in 2019. Please sign up to be the first to receive a copy when this version is released! (Home use DVDs may be viewed in private homes only. This does NOT include a Public Performance license and screening a Home Use DVD for an audience is a violation of copyright law. For classroom use or other organizational use, please purchase an institutional DVD.)
▷ How much does it cost to purchase a public performance license to show 4 WHEEL BOB to a group?
- Screening Kit + corporation or conference license ($350.00)
- Screening Kit + college/university license ($295.00) - classroom use with PPR
- Screening Kit + community group license ($145.00)
- Screening Kit + K-12 School public library license ($95.00)
▷ Why are the prices for institutional screening licenses higher than home-use DVDs?
Home video DVDs do not include public performance rights, so their use is limited to home screenings with just a few people. Having public performance rights greatly increases the potential uses of the film and therefore costs more. As independent filmmakers, our goal is to make the film accessible to all types of organizations and, at the same time, generate enough revenue to keep our outreach efforts moving forward. We therefore offer a tiered licensing and pricing system based on the general usage for each type of organization and their operating budgets.
▷ What is a public performance?
According to the U.S. copyright law (Title 17, United States Code, Section 110), a public performance is any screening of a videocassette, DVD, videodisc or film which occurs outside of the home, or at any place where people are gathered who are not family members, such as in a school, library, auditorium, classroom or meeting room. Please see more helpful information about public performance rights HERE.
