About Films For Action
 

Film offers us a powerful tool to raise awareness of important issues not covered by the corporate news. Our goal is to provide citizens of the world with the information and perspectives essential to creating a more just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Our website has cataloged over 3000 of the best documentaries, short films and videos that can be watched free online, sorted into 40 subjects related to changing the world. And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also cataloged a fair amount of articles, too.

 


 

New to the site?
 

There are a few great ways to dive in. You can start with our Wall of Films, which is a fun way to browse the 500 best documentaries on the site, with the most viewed at the top.

Our list of top 100 activist documentaries, rated by our site members, is also super quality. We also made a list of the "top 100 documentaries we can use to change the world" in 2015. 

Looking to be inspired and see more beauty in the world? Check out this visionary list of 90 films

Since our site acts as an online library, you can sort content by most viewedtop rated, or newest first.

You can also filter content by topics such as foodsustainabilityeconomicssolutions or big ideas. Check out the Explore menu for other filtering options, like language and country.
