Did you know you can search for films, both streaming and in physical formats, in different languages? Languages include Hindi, French, Korean, Swedish and Chinese. To find films in another language, search the catalog for "movies." Then scroll down to view the Languages facet, located on the left side, to see available languages. Click on the language you want to narrow down your results. Place one (or two or more!) on hold, and enjoy.
If you are browsing on your tablet or mobile device, the filter button will be blue and also appear on the left side of the screen. Then, continue to scroll through the facets until you reach Language.
