Kanopy is a video streaming collection providing access to over 20,000 films from more than 850 filmmakers.
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.
- 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.
