Stream Independent International Film Festival Hits
with Berkeley Public Library’s Newest 24/7 Online Service
Berkeley, April 30, 2014—Fresh from our launch of Freegal® Music and Freegal® Movies, the Berkeley Public Library is launching another digital movies service called IndieFlix. Through the Library’s website card holders have unlimited access 24/7.
- IndieFlix provides access to award-winning independent films, shorts and documentaries from around the world. Patrons have unlimited access to stream thousands of film-festival hits, including the best of Sundance, Cannes, Tribeca, and more.
- There are no borrowing, viewing, or simultaneous use limits. Sign in and get unlimited access to the full collection of films. IndieFlix is on the same platform as Zinio-Online Newsstand. Already have a Zinio account? Just sign in. Don’t have an account yet? Create a new FREE account for IndieFlix from the landing page.
- IndieFlix is available on Apple®, Android™, and all internet-enabled devices. Patrons can also watch films on TV with their Roku® devices or Xbox®.
- Films on IndieFlix are all independent which means the Motion Picture Association of America does not rate them. Viewer discretion is advised.
Andrea Mullarkey, Collection Development Librarian says, “We are excited to offer this service to patrons and think it will nicely complement our DVD collection and other digital media options. Berkeley has a rich tradition of supporting the arts and culture; our patrons have a broad interest in film. We are pleased to offer our community even more ways to enjoy diverse media like independent films, documentaries, animated film and shorts". For more information on how to access this service call 510-981-6241.
