Swank Movie Licensing USA is excited to continue our partnership with the Washington State PTA to bring Movie Licensing to WSPTA member schools at significant savings. Swank Movie Licensing understands that many of our plans for the 2020-21 school year have been put on hold, including events and fundraisers involving movies. In response to the ongoing pandemic, Swank is offering a postponement of the WSPTA license renewal for the 2020-2021 school year. If you plan to use movies at your school before 9/1/21, please feel free to contact Kimberly Cassidy at email@example.com to arrange for a license.
*Please note, any PTA that has made payment to the WSPTA for the 20/21 renewal, but now does not plan on using it is eligible for a refund. Please contact Robert Montenegro firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
