The prices listed are for NTSC DVD Region 0 or NTSC VHS cassettes (the US standard). All Bullfrog Films DVDs are “all-region” (but often referred to as “region free” or “Region 0”), meaning they should be compatible with any DVD player in any country. Region codes do not apply to the recordable DVD-R format.
Bullfrog Films DVDs are formatted for NTSC. For customers in areas that use PAL this is generally not an issue, as most DVD players sold in countries using the PAL standard are able to read both PAL and NTSC-formatted DVDs and DVD-Rs*. However, the majority of players sold in areas using the NTSC standard will not play PAL-formatted media. According to DVD Demystified, NTSC discs will play on over 95% of DVD players/systems worldwide.
Customers who require PAL-formatted DVDs should contact us via phone or email with your requests.
*Viewers in PAL regions may encounter a problem when attempting to watch an NTSC-formatted DVD/DVD-R via a PAL-only television set.
Note: The common denominator to all the titles on this web site is that Bullfrog
has non-theatrical rights within the US. Outside the US the rule of thumb is
that if the producer listed is a well-known large institution, such as the
National Film Board of Canada, Film Australia, Australian Broadcasting
Corporation etc., then we probably can NOT sell you the program. However,
if the producer sounds like an independent company or producer, then we
probably CAN sell you the program.
Please email us to confirm:
--the availability of the program(s) you are interested in
--the format you require
--the shipping method requested.
We will reply with a quotation or with contact information for the
National Film Board of Canada titles are available from the NFB and CBC titles should be ordered directly from the CBC.
For DVD and DSL please email us at email@example.com with any questions.
For streaming licenses please contact Elena Wayne at Docuseek.
If you're paying by cheque, please note we do ask for payment in US dollars drawn on a US bank. The simplest way to pay is with a Visa, MasterCard or PayPal.

Funded media buyers from educational institutions may preview any Bullfrog Films title FREE for purchase evaluation. We may ask international customers to preview online or pay a shipping fee.
Currently, the default option for preview orders is a DVD preview mailed to you at your institution. We now also offer free streaming previews upon request for our new releases. Please send us an email to request a streaming preview. A preview ordered through our online cart will default to a DVD preview.
For DVD previews: The DVD preview copy you receive will contain the complete film, and the free preview privilege is intended to enable you to make an informed purchase decision. The preview privilege is not available to renters, home video customers, or to those buying titles for under $90. Bullfrog Films reserves the right to revoke this privilege at any time if we feel it is not being utilized in the manner for which it is intended.
DVD preview copies are almost always new copies, and customers who retain their previews can save 10% off the purchase price. Simply contact Bullfrog to let us know of your retention request so that we can bill you the appropriate amount. If the DVD preview does not suit your needs, it must be returned. See the FAQ question below for shipping instructions.
For streaming previews: Our streaming previews are hosted on Vimeo. You will be provided with a link to the film title you wish to preview, along with a password to access the preview. Vimeo passwords will be changed regularly. If you find that the password provided to you no longer works — and you are still within your preview period — please email us for an updated password.
K-12 teachers are entitled to a 30% discount on all rental fees, but you must include this on your purchase order.

DVDs being returned to Bullfrog Films should be insured for $50 per item and securely packaged in a padded or rigid mailer or shipping box. Please do not apply tape or affix handwritten memos to the DVD/VHS itself as these can damage the item and may necessitate replacement.

Cancellations must be received at least 5 days before the shipping date. The cancellation fee is $10 plus shipping charges, if any.
PUBLIC PERFORMANCE RIGHTS
A "public performance" is any performance of a DVD or videocassette which occurs outside of the home, or at any place where people are gathered who are not family members, such as in a school or library. In most cases titles sold by video and retail outlets are restricted to home use only and do not include public performance rights. All of the prices listed on the individual film pages include public performance rights, EXCEPT those listed as "Home Use Versions". For further details, read the license agreement.
To safeguard your investment in Bullfrog DVDs and videocassettes, we will replace any damaged, stolen or misplaced Bullfrog DVD or VHS videocassette in the original purchased format for $25. This warranty applies as long as the program is offered for sale. Please notify us of the circumstances.
VOLUME DISCOUNTS AND DUPLICATION LICENSES
We give substantial discounts on multiple video purchases. For quality control reasons and copyright protection we prefer to provide you with competitively priced, and guaranteed, pre-recorded cassettes. Just call us on our toll free number for a quote. We will honor purchases of additional copies at the lowest applicable discount rate within one year of the original purchase. For longer series, and in other special circumstances, video duplication licenses are more appropriate. Please call to discuss your needs.
Television rights for cable, commercial or educational television are specifically NOT included with the life of copy license, rental, or preview of Bullfrog titles. Many titles however may be shown on television, but must be cleared for television and covered by a licensing agreement before being broadcast.
