Kanopy is our new film streaming service showcasing more than 30,000 films, including award-winning documentaries, rare and hard-to-find indies, film festival favorites, the Criterion Collection, early cinema, PBS and much more! New releases are launched daily, and roughly 400 new movies are added each month!
Kanopy aims to provide “thoughtful entertainment” by offering access to films of unique social and cultural value; films that are often difficult or impossible to access elsewhere and inclusive programming that features foreign language films and films on race, culture and current affairs.
Kanopy’s dedication to thoughtful entertainment includes educational and engaging videos for children through Kanopy Kids. This collection of titles for children of all ages includes PBS Kids programming and encourages social and emotional development, promotes respect for community diversity and inspires creativity. Parents can even add a passcode to their account to stop children from leaving the kid’s portal or searching for titles that are not age appropriate.
Fountaindale Library cardholders can borrow up to eight titles per month. Each checkout has a three-day loan period. Stream whenever and wherever you like through your web browser or the Kanopy app available in the App Store, Google Play Store, Roku and Amazon Fire Tablet.
