Free Documentaries

On the UK Film Channel, we have a great selection of Free Movies from UK and international filmmakers. Amongst these are a collection of free documentaries to watch online - with absolutely no catch. There is no sign-up required, no payment, and no annoying fear that what you are doing is illegal.


These free documentaries are already readily available on streaming platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo. We have simply worked with the filmmakers directly, and got their permission to embed them on the site. The filmmakers get the views, you get free movies to watch and we get to serve everyone - because we are nice like that.


We have also incorporated movie reviews from our sister site - UK Film Review - so you can see what their film critics have to say about these free documentaries.


How to watch Free Documentaries


Take a look at the movie posters on the Free Documentaries page and click the one that takes your fancy. Once you are on the individual page for the film itself, there will be a video embed which you can click and play, whether on a desktop, mobile or tablet.


Alternatively, go to the Free Movies section of Find a Movie page, where you can peruse a bigger selection of free movies to watch online on the UK Film Channel.
