Kanopy: new video streaming collection now available


Kanopy is a new video streaming collection providing access to over 20,000 films from more than 850 filmmakers. 
Some of the key partners include:
  • The Criterion Collection 
  • Media Education Foundation 
  • New Day Films 
  • BBC 
Kanopy's film collection covers all subject disciplines and includes documentaries, feature films, foreign language film, independent film, instructional film and more. Over 200+ new films are added every month.

The Library's access to Kanopy is via a Patron Driven Acquisition Programme. A set amount of money has been paid to the supplier of Kanopy for this financial year. If a film is viewed 4+ times this film is licensed/triggered and the budget is deducted accordingly.

Note: Lecturers should ensure any films/documentaries required for course material are viewed 4+ times to ensure the film is triggered. The usage of Kanopy will be monitored regularly.

Kanopy's Help Center is a very useful resource area. Viewers can add films to watchlists, create film clips and playlists highlighting particular sections or lists of films.


Note: 
  • All films must be watched online, there is no download feature 
  • Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers should be used in preference to Internet Explorer 

Access to Kanopy is available from the Library Catalogue.
