Film is a wonderful medium for teaching and learning. FOD includes films on most anything you can think of (currently, 52,308 titles with new content added frequently) from a wide range of producers. To see the subject areas and the number of films available in each area, click here. To zero in on the producers (A&E, BBC, History Education, Frontline, HBO, and Ted, to name only a few), click here.
