Sign up with your library card at the Kanopy site:  https://newfairfieldlibrary.kanopy.com/ 

Kanopy showcases more than 30,000 of the world’s best films, including award-winning documentaries, rare and hard-to-find titles, film festival favorites, indie and classic films, and world cinema.

“Here's how it works:

 Up to 8 films per month

Your library has generously given you 8 play credits every month.

 3 days to watch each film

Once you press play on a film, you have 3 days to view it as many times as you like without using another play credit.

 Play credits reset on the 1st of the month

Once you have reached your quota of films, you will not be able to play any films until the new month starts when you will be given a fresh quota of 8 play credits again.

 Any device

You can access Kanopy from any device, including iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, and many more!”  See all supported mobile and TV apps at the Kanopy site.
