Today we spent sometime navigating the popular website Internet Archive and we came across this wonderful resource of free educational movies and documentaries. This is basically a library that embeds a wide collection of academic and cultural films collected from different sources ( e.g digital libraries, university websites, video hosting sites, educational platforms and many more). The library has over 30.000 movies and over 100 collections.You can use the search box on the lefthand of the page to conduct a quick search and locate movies you are interested in. You can also filter your search using criteria such as title, date archived, creator and views.
‘This library of academic and cultural films features collections from the Academic Film Archive and the Media Burn Independent Film Archive, as well as a selection of documentaries created by Dorothy Fadiman. In addition, films from the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archeology and Anthropology are presented including those by Watson Kintner who used film to document his world travels, and the popular television show from the 1950s: “What in the World?” ’
