DEFA's Here for You!

Along with the rest of UMass Amherst, the DEFA Film Library is closing in an effort to flatten the curve. But our staff will continue to be available via email.


As more and more colleges, universities and high schools are moving to online courses, remember that your school may already have access to streaming our DEFA films through Kanopy.


There will be restrictions to accessing our films on DVD, though. Please note that online DVD orders will not be shipped until we are allowed to access our offices again. If researchers need immediate access to a film, we can try to help; please email


And join the #handwashchallenge!
