Determining Studio Coverage

To verify if a specific motion picture or audiovisual program is covered under the Umbrella License, please consult the Internet Movie Database website at Simply search for the title you wish to screen and click on your selection. Scroll down to the “company credits” section of the page. Click on “see more.” On the company credits page review the “distributors.” Look for the USA “theatrical” or “all media” distributor. If the USA distributor is listed on the Umbrella License Producer List for schools, the title is covered under your license.

The Umbrella License provides coverage for all programs produced by DreamWorks Animation. If DreamWorks Animation is listed on the IMDb company credits page under “production companies,” the program is covered under the Umbrella License.
