Documentary Heaven has been around since 2009, we are an educational website dedicated solely to bringing you the very best documentary films sourced from all over the internet. We currently have thousands of free thought-provoking documentaries for you to choose from which fall into a wide range of categories.

This is okay, and the very reason we have a comments section available, so please know you can express your opinions here freely without the worry of censorship.

There can indeed be an ulterior motive or agenda lurking behind any polished documentary so stay vigilant and encourage growth within our community.

If you are in any way passionate about documentaries than I have a feeling this is the place for you. So why not browse the collection, check out our documentary list organized by category, or even see what the top 100 docs featured are.
