Film & streaming video

Finding films

Both Tisch and SMFA libraries provide access to both DVDs as well as streaming films. The SMFA Library's browsable DVD collection includes art documentaries, experimental film and animation, and classic feature films. 

To locate films in our collections:

  1. Use JumboSearch to look up the title, director, or starring actor(s) of the film.
  2. You can limit your JumboSearch results to Audio Visual materials using the "Resource Type" filter on the left side of the results list (if there are a lot of results, you may have to select Show More to see the Audio Visual option). 
  3. You can also browse our physical DVD collections in person on the Main Floor (Level 2) of Tisch Library, and at the SMFA library.

Streaming video

The libraries provide access to a variety of streaming film and video through several platforms, including:

Using film in a class

Faculty and instructors can use Tisch Library’s Streaming Media Service, which digitizes films from the Library’s DVD collection and uploads those films to Canvas. To make a request, please email our Streaming Media team directly.
