I have a school project where I have to make a website/web app about a topic and I chose whitewashing and representation in films. I have a silver membership and I was hoping to confirm that it is safe and legal to use movie stills downloaded from this database on my website. The stills used will only be to demonstrate instances of whitewashing and within an academic context. None of this is for commercial use, just to be used in image carousels displaying the history of whitewashing and another carousel showing progress made in Hollywood representation.
I was also wondering what attributions I should use with the images. Should I attribute both MovieStillsDB and the film company the copyright belongs to? Or just the film company?
Please let me know if there is anything else I should do concerning the copyright of the images found on this database. Thank you!
