  • An annual Is Genesis History? Movie License for 1 location.

See more in the Resources and FAQ tab.

The Federal Copyright Act (Title 17 of the U.S. Code) stipulates that the showing of a movie, beyond private, home viewing, requires an additional public performance license. This legal requirement applies regardless of whether an admission fee is charged or whether the institution or organization is commercial or non-profit.

 Is Genesis History?

Is Genesis History? is a comprehensive documentary featuring over a dozen scientists and scholars looking at the world and explaining how it intersects with the history recorded in Genesis. From rock layers to fossils to lions to stars, this fascinating film will challenge and change the way you see the world. Is Genesis History? shines new light on our origins, providing a positive argument for Biblical Creation and the Flood. Dr. Del Tackett, creator of The Truth Project, serves as your guide—hiking through canyons, climbing up mountains, and diving below the sea—in an exploration of two competing views ... one compelling truth.

1Reviews For Is Genesis History? - Group Viewing License

  1. Ed

    All of the chapters are outstanding. The only thing I wish had been included in the last chapter about "Time" is that the 6 days of creation plus the 7th day of rest is the only reference to a 7 day week, and that we still follow it to this day.

    Sabbath rest on the 7th day is not Jewish, but is a creation of God and is reinforced in the 10 commandments.
    There is no record anywhere of it being changed in the bible. Still in effect in Revelation. (see Revelation 14:12 and Revelation 22:14). We are NOT saved by works, but Jesus said "If you love Me, keep My commandments".

I own the DVD. Why do we need a License?

The copyright law of the United States mandates that in order to use a copyrighted work, you must first gain permission from the copyright owner. Consumer DVD and Blu-rayTM are for in-home use only. Any showing outside a home is considered “public” and therefore permission is needed from the copyright owner to show the film.

The cost is prohibitive to us. Is there a way to get it for less, or how can we recoup the cost?

Some church networks and denominations have worked out discounts for their churches; check with those offices to find out if anything is available. 

There are a number of ways to recoup any costs:

  1. If you need to ticket the event because of seating issues, list a "suggested donation" on the ticket (remember, you cannot require an admission price).
  2. Offer free admission, but sell concession tickets for popcorn and a drink, or a hot dog dinner.
  3. Collect a freewill offering or leave baskets at the doors to collect gifts. People are accustomed to paying to see a film, so giving a donation to cover costs would not be seen as unusual.
  4. Many churches simply ask the congregation to consider giving a special gift for the Movie Event above and beyond their regular giving. The cost of the License represents less than $1.00 per person in the typical church.
  5. Ask a local business to sponsor the event, give them placement on your promotional materials and do a short sponsorship "commercial" to thank them prior to showing the film.
  6. Purchase bulk DVDs and resell them at your event and use the proceeds to fund your event or future events.


Since I'm buying a License, can we charge admission?

No. You cannot charge for admission. The license only gives you permission to do a public showing of the Movie and marketing your event. However, there are a number of ways to recoup costs. (See ideas under "The Cost is Prohibitive to Us…")

Can our church use clips from the film to be shown on our webcast, TV program, or radio broadcast?

No, you may not use clips from the film on your TV program, radio broadcast or Webcast. The only exception is using the trailer to promote an upcoming event.

We record our service, not for broadcast, but on DVD to be sold/provided for our congregation members, is that allowed?

No, you may not use clips from the film regardless of if the recorded media (DVD, tape, etc.) is sold or for free. The only exception is using the trailer to promote an upcoming event.




This license grants you permission to hold an unlimited number of group showings of Is Genesis History? for the period of one year from the date of purchase, with the following provisions:

  • You do not require an “admission” charge (but you can accept donations).*
  • The movie is not edited in any form, duplicated, or used for TV or Internet broadcast of any kind.
  • The showing is hosted by your paid staff, and the movie is not loaned to another ministry or organization.

*ADMISSION NOTE: If your organization needs to issue tickets in order to manage the number of attendees or recoup expenses, you may offer tickets clearly marked with a ‘suggested donation’. Exhibition requiring an admission fee to the movie is a copyright violation and unlawful.


Advertising outlets and promotional resources can be viewed at IsGenesisHistory.com.

YOU MUST FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES PUBLISHED WITHIN THE MATERIALS AND ONLINE. You may only make additions to artwork that reflect your venue and date information for the showing, your organization name and contact information (phone number and/or website).
