performance rights for student-run film series?

What are the performance rights issues? The film series would fulfil requirements for an independent study for my degree, so I would think that it would be considered a teaching activity and not entertainment. What part do publicity of the events and access to the venue play in securing performance rights? What about feature films vs. 'non-dramatic' works? There would be no admission charge and access would be restricted to grad students and faculty in the dept. thanks, Anne
