What is Films For Action? Our goal is to provide citizens of the world with the information and perspectives essential to creating a more just, sustainable, and democratic society. Film is a powerful tool to raise awareness of important issues not covered by the corporate news. Here you’ll find over 4,000 of the best documentaries, short films and videos that you can watch free online. And, since there’s still so much to learn about that isn’t featured in a film, you will also find hundreds of articles here, too.
