Web Sites: Free Documentaries.org
Why I am recommending Free Documentaries.org:
Because the range of subject matter is fantastic and the fact that they offer users the opportunity to see these amazing and informative films for free is - well, does it get any better? For a great way to spend a winter afternoon - hang out on this site!
From the Web:
At freedocumentaries.org we strongly believe that in order to have a true democracy, there has to be a free flow of easily accessible information. Unfortunately, many important perspectives, opinions, and facts never make it to our televisions or cinemas (you can watch movies in our media category if you want to know why).
For this reason we decided to start freedocumentaries.org, a site where anyone with an internet connection can watch a movie to educate themselves or simply explore another perspective whenever they please. These movies aren't just for education but are also for entertainment.
As a secondary objective freedocumentaires.org allows independent filmmakers to have their message heard by viewers that they may not normally reach.
Our goal is to have everyone that watches a film at freedocumentaries.org learn something; whether it be a new perspective on a topic, simply understanding a conflict, or being more accepting of a certain belief system. We are proud to say that the vast majority of people that watch our films are glad they did so. In fact many people become addicted to watching documentaries after seeing a movie on our site.
