To supplement our extensive audiovisual collections, we’ve subscribed to a number of video streaming services that provide access to rare documentary and feature films that will enhance your learning experience, but also just be enjoyable to watch.

Art Films is a platform providing content that can entertain, educate and inform. Art Films allows you to stream hundreds of exclusive educational videos from top artists and independent producers with unlimited, simultaneous usage.

You can search for a title that interests you but you might find the browse facility more productive. There are films in numerous art-related disciplines, which you can easily browse by, including:

  • Architecture
  • Communication/Culture
  • Dance
  • Design
  • Digital Art/New Media
  • Film/Cinema
  • Language/Literature
  • Media/Television
  • Music
  • Performing Art
  • Photography
  • Theatre
  • Visual Art

In the Film/Cinema section, there is a particular emphasis on Australia Cinema (Art Films is an Australian company), which includes access to almost every film by the late well-respected Dutch-Australian auteur, Paul Cox, whose films such as ‘Man of Flowers’ and ‘A Woman’s Tale’ won a number of international awards and helped raise the profile of Australian cinema.

To access Art Films on-campus visit the A-Z Resource List and select Art Films. You shouldn’t need your username and password on-campus. To access Art Films off-campus, use the following link. You will need to log-in with your username and password.
