Free online films.
Documentary film has the power to engage an audience at a level beyond entertainment, and go on to enlighten hearts and minds.
During our higher national or local Alert levels, Confluence Cinema wants to help keep audiences engaged in film by publishing regular recommendations on this page. The mission was, and continues to be, finding free to view* quality online content.
*In most cases the films recommended are free for anyone to view, but in some cases the films are only free to Whanganui residents who hold a library card and have signed up to Kanopy.
Biggest Confluence box office.
Here are the top five films, based on Confluence box office figures, that now also have a free online version to watch at home.
Selected specifically for Whanganui public library card holders or others with free access to the Kanopy online service. There are also films freely viewable by anyone that we've sourced from worldwide public film libraries.
Clicking on each poster will take you directly to that film on within whatever service is hosting it for free viewing. Remember you may need to login to that service, or create a free account, to actually view the films.
