Free Resources During COVID-19 Disruptions

A list of free resources offered by publishers to ease the transition to remote instruction.

Video Platforms and Publishers


Artfilms (videos)

Artfilms is offering a heavily discounted subscription to up to 2000 streaming videos for university libraries:  $US 500 for access from now until end of September.  We will work with libraries to match our titles with existing reading lists on request. Titles included will be influenced by your location, due to licensing rights.  More information here:  *Please note this arrangement is for new subscriptions only as we must protect the interest of our rights holders and artists also.


Additionally:  Libraries that have existing Artfilms DVD they need to stream, should contact us directly with an email request and where possible we will provide access at no charge for this period.


We will review arrangements in September.

Subject: RE: [videolib] advice on streaming films during university going online


To help out with the challenge of maintaining instruction in cases where face-to-face instruction is cancelled, Docuseek has worked out an arrangement with its distribution partners, Bullfrog Films and Icarus Films, to make any of their titles on Docuseek available for educational streaming, at no charge, as long as the school has a legally-acquired copy of the title (any format), through June 30.


If there are Docuseek titles from other distributors (e.g. Kartemquin, First Run, National Film Board) that you have a hard copy of and your faculty want to use in remote teaching during this period, let us know and we can see what we can do to make the film available.


If this is something that you are interested in pursuing, please contact
