The Breathe film about polio survivor Andew Cavendish is available to Clubs for showing under certain conditions
Breathe was released on DVD/BluRay on 5th March. The film
distributors STX have very exceptionally and kindly agreed that, for any
Rotary charity screening within Great Britain and Ireland which is
outside of commercial cinemas and uses DVD or BluRay, there will be no
licence fee/charge payable. To take advantage of this the proceeds must
go to our Rotary End Polio Now campaign and applies to any Rotary
screening at any venue other than a commercial cinema including club
meeting venues, village and community cinemas and similar. Any charity
screening at a commercial cinema will still be subject to a charge.
So, to take advantage of this excellent opportunity clubs must:-
1) Buy your own copy of the DVD/BluRay from a legal source such as HMV, Amazon.
2) You MUST email Jannine Birtwhistle firstname.lastname@example.org in
advance with details of the planned screening/s including date,
location and event details as SHE MUST maintain a list of all screenings
and update this list for the film distributors on a regular basis.
Failure to do so may mean this amazing deal is withdrawn for the whole
3) Only use this DVD/BluRay for personal use and/or for charity screening; and
4) Only use the Breathe image for Breathe as previously provided in
the Briefing Note (requires member login). This can be topped and
tailed as appropriate for the event but do not alter the image itself in
