AVA - STREAM UNIQUE FILMS
WITH YOUR LIBRARY CARD
AVA (Audio Visual Access) is a streaming provider that has been developed specifically for libraries, offering a unique selection of European and international arthouse films. Stream films from the comfort of your own home or on-the-go from any major device - simply log in with your library card, it’s as easy as that!
WHAT MAKES AVA DIFFERENT?
We build a unique streaming platform for each of our individual library partners. This means that the selection of films, the presentation of content, the layout, colour scheme, integration of logos and language options can all be adapted to meet the requirements of each institution. We work closely with our library partners to acquire and curate films that are tailored to the variety of needs and interests of your users, including local, regional and special-interest content. We also work to ensure that our film metadata can be integrated easily into your existing library systems by using standardised metadata and identifiers.
AVA MEETS ALL YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS!
We work with internationally renowned distributors and some of Europe’s best film festivals to create our film selection. As well as feature films, users can also stream festival-selected documentaries and short films that aren’t readily available on commercial streaming platforms. It is particularly important for us to showcase European, arthouse and niche films that reflect the diversity of library users today. In order to highlight this, we curate and present our films in a number of packages. We break AVA content down into traditional sections such as film type and genre, and into regional groupings such as African films and into thematic focus selections such as Films on Migration.

AVA IS AVAILABLE ACROSS EUROPE!
Since its inception, AVA has had a strong European focus and is proudly co-funded by the European Commission. We work together with festival partners and libraries in a number of European countries, from the very North in Finland to sunny south of Italy, from the west coast of the continent in Portugal to the heart of Southeastern Europe in Serbia. Multilingualism is, of course, a central concern for us, and we offer multi-language options for our films and our interfaces.
