Library’s e-collection growing

IndieFlix is a streaming video service that provides access to award-winning independent feature films

Okanagan Regional Library is expanding its collection of digital resources.

IndieFlix is a streaming video service that provides access to award-winning independent feature films and documentaries from around the globe. Anyone with an ORL card can create an IndieFlix account and watch streaming content for free.

The IndieFlix collection includes more than 7,000 titles, including independent film festival hits from Sundance and Cannes.

“What’s great about this collection is that the content is always available for streaming; there are no holds or waiting or downloading needed”, said Chantelle McGee, ORL’s virtual branch head.

“The films on IndieFlix can be streamed on any Internet-enabled computer, tablet, smartphone, or even through an Xbox or Roku.”

IndieFlix is the ORL’s first collection of streaming films and it includes a variety of content, everything from documentaries to film shorts to television series. There are channels for PBS, action, romance, festivals, foreign, food and much more.

“It’s exciting as more and more online content becomes available to library customers”, said McGee.

“Over the past few years we’ve greatly expanded our eBook and eAudiobook collections, and have added services like Zinio for Libraries that allow users to download magazines for free.”
