Searching and Finding Made Easy

Searching is easy and intuitive.  Simply type what you're looking for into the search box   You won't even need to type the whole word to discover what's available!

In the example below, when searching "environ", you will see two columns.  Left for individual videos and right for related, curated channels.  Clicking on a video or channel will take you to that result.  Hitting enter after typing in your search term will take you to a list of individual video results.

Filtering Results

After executing your search, a visual arrangement of results will appear.  The red filter/facet toggle (looks like a funnel) in the upper center of the screen will reveal many choices for defining and refining a search by Subject, Publisher, Person, Content Type, and Release Date using the slider.  

Add filters by clicking on them.  Remove them by clicking on the X that will appear next to them after you've enabled them.  The large, red X will collapse the filter menu.

From the results, the lower case can be clicked to find out more on a video/film without actually launching the film in the cinematic experience.
