Bring the Movies Home

Images from the films Fresh Dressed, Ay Mariposa - Butterflies and Border Walls, and Art House - Exploring the Homes of Artists, all available from Kanopy.

Until April 12, Kanopy is offering a selection of films that won’t deduct from your monthly play credits — enjoy them here! In addition, get free, unlimited access to Kanopy Kids to enjoy storytimes, educational TV shows, animated films, and more.

With your Belmont Public Library card, Kanopy gives you film festival favorites, award-winning documentaries, and countless films from the Criterion Collection, Great Courses, PBS, Women Make Movies, Samuel Goldwyn, and more. In addition to the credit-free viewing above, you can stream up to 5 titles per month. Once you press the play button on a film, you have 3 days to view it as many times as you like, without using another one of your 5 “play credits.”

To use Kanopy on your computer, sign up online; on your TV, use AppleTV, Chromecast, or Roku; or on a mobile device, download the Kanopy app for iOS or Android.
