Reservations & Cancellations

To help producers make the best use of facilities and equipment, producers will be offered orientation/training classes. These classes are required prior to use of any facility or equipment.

Once a producer completes training in a specific catagory, they are certified and can begin making facility and equipment reservations.

Field and editing equipment reservations may be made up to thirty days in advance and used for the allotted time specified on the reservation form for each equipment type.

Denver Community Media reserves the right to cancel reservations due to emergency situations. In the rare event that a cancellation is necessary, Denver Community Media will make every reasonable effort to reschedule the reservation or assist in making other arrangements with existing partners if possible.

Reservations may conveniently be made online here or by calling 720-865-2324, or emailing info@denvercommunitymedia.org .

Producer Responsibilities Regarding Cancellations
