SAPL Offers NEW Independent Film Streaming Service
SAPL now offers IndieFlix, a new streaming video service that allows library cardholders to watch award-winning shorts, features, and documentaries from over 50 countries around the world. There are no checkouts, returns, or waiting, and multiple users can watch the same film on different devices at the same time.
IndieFlix supports independent filmmakers by showing their work. The collection does not include blockbusters or well-known films, but it includes a range of genres including animation, drama, comedy, and films for kids. Some of these are feature-length films but most are shorts. Films are not rated by the MPAA, so viewer discretion is advised.
IndieFlix delivers the films to patrons on their computers, tablets, mobile devices, Roku players and Xbox 360s.
Patrons have unlimited access to thousands of streaming film-festival hits, including the best of Sundance, Cannes, Tribeca, and more.
