Film Platform

Film Platform connects academic audiences with leading documentary films from across the world. The collection is meticulously curated by film experts and leading academics to showcase meaningful documentaries of social, political and cultural importance.  The catalogue is continually expanding to include the newest award-winning documentaries and current film festival favourites. Over 90% of the catalogue is exclusively available via Film Platform.

The Library must select films and lease them for one year.  To request curricular use of a film from Film Platform, send an email to Pat Dover prdover@sewanee.edu . Be sure to provide the title, the director, the date of release, and the number of the course for which it is being requested.
