Site Access Policy

Screening Shorts has two modes of access – public, where a user is not logged in, and private where a user is logged in.

1. Public Access

Any user can find out more information about this online resource but will not be able to browse, search, view or download any of our film clips.

2. Private Access

Educational users, typically teachers, students and other lead practitioners can browse, search, view or download higher resolution clips for creative reuse such as for the creation of moving image essays, documentaries, art films, music and other cross-curricular projects.

Please also see our Terms of Use for guidance on using the films.

3. About Login

Glow users can login using their Glow credentials – follow the Glow Log In link on the right hand side of any page.

Shibboleth users can login using their Shibboleth credentials – follow the Shibboleth Log In link on the right hand side of any page.

Other users can be subscribed to Screening Shorts but not as a Glow or as a Shibboleth user – they can login by entering their Screening Shorts username and password in the boxes on the right hand side of any page.

If you don't have a login to Screening Shorts, you can apply for access by completing and submitting our Request Login Form

All applications will be vetted according to this Site Access policy.

4. Applications for Private Access

Users with private access can browse, search, view and download film clips whereas users with public access cannot do so. If you don't have a login to Screening Shorts, you can apply for access by completing and submitting our Request Login Form. All applications for private access are vetted by the Screening Shorts team according to a set of criteria.
