We love Kanopy, but sometimes it’s not simple to decide what to watch, especially when you have over 30,000 films and documentaries to choose from. But help is at hand with our ongoing NOFOMO Film Festival– every week we’ll be hand-picking our favourites and sharing them with you – so you’ll have No Fear Of Missing Out on great films.
