Kanopy is a streaming video service that licenses access via libraries. Different library systems will have varying agreements with Kanopy, so the catalog of available titles may also differ depending on the individual license at a given institution. UCLA Library offers access to an academic version of Kanopy for current students, staff, and faculty, including selected titles from the Criterion collection, A24, New Day, Kino Lorber, PBS, and other content providers.
Titles available in Kanopy can change over time depending on agreements with rights holders, including the addition of new titles and the removal of existing titles. Some titles purchased for perpetual access are listed in the UCLA Library Catalog, but patrons are encouraged to search/browse Kanopy directly for the full range of offerings. Films on Kanopy must be viewed online, and cannot be downloaded.
