IndieFlix now at Huron County Library!

Starting July 1st, IndieFlix will be available to Huron County Library patrons. IndieFlix is online streaming of films by independent filmmakers. Everything from award-winning animated shorts, to feature-length films are available for your viewing pleasure. IndieFlix works through a revenue-sharing Royalty Pool Minutes (RPM) model, where filmmakers are paid for every minute watched by an IndieFlix subscriber! So, even though this service is free to you, for every minute you watch, the filmmakers are making money!

You can access the resource on the Huron County Library website, by clicking the link IndieFlix, and create an account for free! You'll be able to watch your films of choice from home or within the library branches! Searching the films can be done by genre, film length, and audience level. Something to note: some IndieFlix titles are not suitable for children and teens; sorting by audience could be very important! IndieFlix is not compatible with Internet Explorer, but works with Firefox and Chrome. Some films are compatible with Xbox and Roku devices.

Stop in and have a view, or have a independent movie-night at home, there is something for everyone!
