How to Use Kanopy

Kanopy is a database offering what the New York Times calls "a garden of cinematic delights."

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 with collections from Kino Lorber, Music Box Films, Samuel Goldwyn, The Orchard, The Great Courses, PBS and thousands of independent filmmakers.

With the motto of "thoughtful entertainment," Kanopy provides Kettering University patrons with access to films of unique social and cultural value; films that are often difficult or impossible to access elsewhere, and programming that features diversity, with a wide array of foreign language films and films on race, and current affairs.

In order to search for a specific film, simply enter it into the search box at the top of the page.




Or, you can choose the "Browse" option at the top of the screen to view films by subject area.




Choose the "My List" button under a film to add it to your Watchlist. For more information on creating Watchlists, please click here.




To embed a film, choose the "Share" option under the film, and select "Embed" to find the embedding code. For more information on embedding films, please click here
