You guys should get X show, its really cool! Why don't you guys have it?

I run a local Anime Club or Convention. We'd like to get permission to screen your shows at our upcoming event. Who do I need to talk to?

Anime Network does not give permission for screening opportunities. For this, you will need to contact the title's domestic licensor (ex. Sentai Filmworks, Maiden Japan) to get permission. These companies will have their own policies for granting screening permission.
