Collection Highlights


International Language DVDs

Our International Film collection represents over 50 different world languages. Most international film titles are in the Library’s Entertainment Collection, but some of our educational titles are international language films.


The Criterion Collection 


The Criterion Collection has been releasing special editions of classic and contemporary films from around the world since 1984.


Film Movement

Film Movement is an ongoing series of award-winning independent and foreign films.


Roger Ebert's Film Festival

Roger Ebert's Film Festival has been a celebrated local event since 1999, and the Library tries to have as many of the films that have been shown at Ebertfest in our DVD collection as possible.



Wholphin is a quarterly DVD magazine published by McSweeney's. Each issue contains a wide variety of always fascinating (and sometimes very strange) short films, both documentary and fiction.
