Film and video resources

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, some publishers are temporarily enhancing access to their content. Check the new Online teaching support guide for information about online resources with unlimited access, including films.

As we are all moving to the online world there will be bandwidth issues, please consider using low bandwidth resources.

Key video streaming resources include:

Informit EduTV
Documentaries, news, Australian films, some mainstream movies and educational content.

Alexander Street Press
Documentaries, news, interviews, educational and instructional content.

Artfilms Digital
A unique collection of contemporary art films suited for coursework, research and reference

Drama Online

Sage criminology & criminal justice video collection
Includes videos on all branches of the criminal justice system to support students and researchers at all levels

The Library is not able to subscribe to webcast services such as Netflix. These services are only available through personal subscriptions and therefore we are not able to make them available for teaching.

The Library's educational licence, available through our agreement with Screenrights, only allows copying of free to air broadcasts.


Teaching staff can book physical film resources for class screenings. (This service is temporarily unavailable due to current circumstances with COVID-19)
