Watch at Home

We anxiously await the time when we can reconnect in person; however, we are also grateful that through the power of film we still have the ability to connect with the world around us. Whether you feel like diving in deep with a documentary or completely escaping with your umpteenth viewing of your favorite rom-com, movies allow us to connect – emotionally, intellectually, and empathetically. To help enrich your quarantine time we have pulled together a list of films from past festivals that are available to view online. 


All the films below can be watched for free through Kanopy and the Pikes Peak Library District. Library card holders can access Kanopy and sign up to start streaming films instantly by visiting ppld.kanopy.com.
