Cinema Exhibition Terms and Conditions

Our terms and conditions for cinema exhibitions.

When a film is exhibited at the ICA, the terms are negotiated at the time of booking, and a percentage of the net box office revenue is agreed to the film’s distributor/rights holder.

For event partners there is a standard allocation of 15 complementary tickets for Cinema 1 events and 5 complementary tickets for Cinema 2 events. Advance notice of use of the comp allocation must be given 48 hours in advance of the screening otherwise tickets will be released for public sale.

All screening materials must be delivered to the ICA projection department 7-14 days prior to the first screening event. Available screening formats are: 35mm, DCP, Digibeta tape, Blu-ray and DVD.

Box office sales reports will be supplied to the rights holder within 14 days of the screening event.

The ICA is a Registered Charity, Charity Number 236848. £1.20 from each ICA ticket sale is allocated directly as a contribution towards the Institute of Contemporary Arts’ public programme. The distributor/rights holder is agreeing to these terms at the time of booking.

Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) requires from all festival, media partners and external parties ('Licensor') in partnership and/or collaboration with the ICA to guarantee that they are the rightsholder for the films and events, and the associated marketing materials thereof, that will take place at the ICA. The Licensor grants all necessary rights and licences to the ICA to allow the ICA to screen the film, or host the event, and to market and promote the same and warrants that in doing so the ICA shall not be infringing the IPR of any party. The Licensor guarantees that each film and/or event they represent, and the associated marketing materials thereof, is protected by copyright, and does not infringe the copyright or any other rights of any third party, and all necessary rights clearances and/or consents (including but not limited to actors, directors, writers, producers, music, footage etc.) necessary to authorise the film or event to be publicly exhibited and promoted have been attained. The Licensor shall indemnify the ICA against all claims, damages, liabilities, losses, costs, reasonable fees (including legal fees) arising out of any screening or event held at the ICA due to copyright or rights clearance issues or disputes. These terms and conditions shall be governed by UK law and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
