Over the last 7 years, Films For Action has been cataloging an online library of the best social change films that can be watched free online. Opting for quality over quantity, the site has grown slowly to include 500 documentaries and 900 short films, trailers and presentations indexed into 41 subjects to make it easy to discover content about specific slices of the social change pie.
Despite whittling down the millions of videos online into a collection of 1400, that's still way too many for any one person to digest, so we've been looking to filter things down even further.
The following 41 films have all been chosen to represent one of the subjects on the site. With the exception of The Economics of Happiness, which was too good not to mention, we've deferred to films that can be watched online over films that only have the trailer available.
For some subjects, it was truly hard to pick a single film rather than several, but consider them all a taste of what lies deeper below the surface. A taste, a taste!
Enjoy the knowledge swim. :)
