FedFlix is a free, online database of films produced by the U.S. Government and hosted by the Internet Archive. (Interesting note: materials produced by the Federal Government are almost always in the public domain, so they’re excellent resources for teaching. )
The site has nearly 5,000 audiovisual works that you can watch, download, stream, review and rate. These range from historical works – such as a 1975 video promoting the efficacy of the Apollo space program – to governmental business meetings such as this one on witness immunity. Films can be found by title, author, items recently added to the collection, subject, keyword, and search.
