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.
It is important to remember that our collection of films have been cultivated in a non-bias fashion, so there may very well be films featured that express opinions you disagree with or perhaps don’t necessarily condone. 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. DH encourages civilized debate, after all just because there is a documentary on something doesn’t necessarily make it a fact. There can indeed be an ulterior motive or agenda lurking behind any polished documentary so stay vigilant and encourage growth within our community.
That being said we post on an every other day schedule and try to rotate subject matter as much as possible in order to keep things fresh and cater for all audiences. 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.
