As the licensors for 20th Century Fox, we can approve your screening of PRINCESS BRIDE on August 17th, 18th and/or 19th. Our arangement will allow you to screen on any of those days. I am aware that you will be providing your own dvd copy for the screening. Please understand that there is no physical license - our correspondence signifies that you are cleared to screen the film in a public setting, and you will be receiving an automatically generated email confimation.

I often e-mail asking for permission to include images in our school yearbook and only get an elecronic response. Assuming the entity you contacted has the authority to grant permission then you are fine. I would print out a copy of all correspondence to put in a safe place and print an additional copy of the e-mail confirmation to have at the screening site if anyone inquires.

You can print those, but they're not automatically printed. They're still legally binding. I would also advise printing and filling, and keeping them in your email archives.
