During the Covid-19 pandemic a number of outlets are making it possible to stream documentary films online for free. (Or nearly free…) I’ve listed some below and will update the list as best I can:
Watch From Home Documentary Educational Resources: Ethnographic, Documentary, and Non-fiction Films from Around the World
Watch Independent Chinese Films Free for a Month with dGenerate
Self-isolating? NFB is streaming free titles including an Indigenous cinema library
265 Free Documentaries Online - Open Culture
MUBI Is Offering Three Months of Great Cinema for Just £1 (Note that this requires signing up for a membership which will charge you a monly bill after the first three months are up. I believe you can cancel at any time, but better check first!)
The wonderful documentary “A Life Without Words” has been made free for online streaming. (Link should automatically apply the coupon “que-no-haya-soledad”)
The Taiwan International Documentary Film Festival (TIDF) is making a number of its films available online for free for 30 days (till the end of April).
