Docschool Online

    Free and unlimited access to films and teaching materials for teachers and their students

    Watching documentaries helps children form opinions, broadens their view, and playfully teaches them to be critical of what they are shown. Moreover, it is a great way to enhance their media literacy.

    This is why IDFA selects the best documentaries for educational purposes, and gives primary and secondary school teachers the opportunity to screen over 130 films in their classrooms for free, through our platform Docschool Online. Besides the films, we also offer educational resources that help enable the students to engage with the films and the issues they deal with more thoroughly. Take a look at our education themes and the study recourses available (only available in Dutch). Below you'll find our online collection, new titles are added throughout the year. The filter will allow you to look for documentaries based on education level, theme, length and/or country.
