Maybe I’m the last to find out about this but if I’m not, I’m sure a lot of you will be interested in this amazing resource. Open Culture provides links to 525 movies which you can watch for free online. Some on YouTube, some on their own page.
Of course you’ll find many other movies and film directors too.
I also like that they included some short movies which won prizes like the French short J’attendrai le prochain which I included above. There are quite a few silent movies and documentaries too.
For people interested in film and film history, this is an invaluable site.
Should you not be interested in film, you may still have a look and find other interesting things like free courses and books. The categories are listed in the side bar.
