Comprehensive, curriculum-focused videos providing unlimited access to more than 40,000 full-length videos from National Geographic, Films for the Humanities & Sciences, HBO, PBS, BBC Worldwide Learning, 


All films are licensed with Public Performance Rights. Films and videos can be embedded into Canvas and users can create clips and playlists.

Finding & Viewing Films

Look up individual titles in Discover to find out if they are licensed in Films on Demand. Or, browse the FOD site here. For example, a search for "immigration" brings up 2854 videos that can be filtered in many ways (see image below). 

Why Not Mediated?

Films on Demand is a subscription database. This means that all content has been licensed for one annual fee. Every film & video is available for immediate viewing.
