Catch 20 free documentaries this summer

Need to break out of the Netflix rut? This summer you can watch 20 free, feature-length independent documentaries online through the ITVS Indies Showcase.

The showcase celebrates 20 years of the Independent Television Service, which presents, funds, and promotes award-winning documentaries for television and the web. ITVS supports freedom of expression and shares stories from people and communities that are often ignored.

Each showcase documentary plays for three days until September 22. Daughter from Danang, a tale of cross-cultural reunion, is playing until July 27. Watch now or learn more about ITVS in this interactive timeline.

Happily, free documentaries can be found tucked away all over the web, including at the National Film Board of Canada site. Anyone else care to share their favourite places for summer net flicks?
