Kanopy - Video Streaming Collection

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. Note:  All films
