And remember your local public library often has great videos to see and share. If you're an educator, you can often show such films for educational purposes under the fair use portion of copyright law (especially if you only show clips), but if you're an individual or part of a group, you need public performance rights (which often cost money). Still, you can always invite a few friends over for a great night of movies and discussion.
What great sites do you know about that offer free videos/clips on humane issues?
