How To: Watchlists

With the launch of our new digital home at, we also introduced Watchlists, a new feature to help viewers collect all the Art21 films they still want to see. The feature lives in the top-right corner of your screen at The icon starts as a play button, but add your first video and that play button changes to a “1.” The number grows with each video you add to help you keep track of all the films in your Watchlist.

Watchlists use local storage to save your videos, so you don’t have to create an account or login to save films. This also means your Watchlists are unique to your computer, so if you access from somewhere new, your Watchlist won’t be accessible.

Add a Video

You can add a video to your Watchlist from anywhere on, just by clicking the little plus icon (+) in the bottom-right corner of any film.

Find films to add to your watchlist across the entire site, including on the homepage, news posts, interviews, and other video pages.

Remove a Video

If you add a video accidentally or change your mind about a film, just open up your Watchlist and click the minus sign (-) in the bottom-right corner of any video you’d like remove.

Rearrange Videos

You can also rearrange videos and watch them all in a row using the autoplay feature, located in the top-right corner of your Watchlist.

Once you’ve watched one of your saved films, it’s still saved at the bottom of your Watchlist under the heading “Watch again.”

Happy watching!
