Projects Leads retain the copyright to their Projects and are encouraged to submit to festivals and participate in community screenings,; however, TELUS has the exclusive first window exhibition rights to the Program. The Project may be screened at festivals and other platforms after the official launch of the Project on TELUS platforms.
TELUS takes a non-exclusive license for 10 years to distribute the content on Optik TV Video On Demand and on its other platforms (such as the STORYHIVE website, Optik On The Go App, and our YouTube channel). Selected projects will be made available on any or all of these platforms and may remain available to the public for the duration of the license. It is the responsibility of each Project Lead to determine any restrictions with music, film or TV festivals and/or other distributors.
