Vegan Vacations loves documentaries! There isn't a week that goes by that we aren't finding ways to grow our education when it comes to eating a plant-based diet, the effects or farming on the world and of course learning tasty new recipes to please the palate. A lot of these movies are streamed on a platform like Netflix. So we were thrilled to hear that both Netflix and Amazon Prime will be offering VegMovies. A library of 200+ films centred around vegan-themed films. We are mostly excited for everyone else out there and the opportunity this presents to assist in their education and/or inspiration to look into the many benefits of eating a plant-based diet.
“The launch of VegMovies has been three years in the making,” Veg Groups Founder Jason Schramm said. “There are so many great movies that are animal-oriented or have a vegan focus, but it can be hard to filter through all of the choices. Until now there hasn’t been a single place where all of the movies could be easily found. Somewhere that was constantly updated with the latest objective information on each film and where to watch them.” (Source: vegnews.com)
Netflix has been exceptional in providing great content focused on veganism over the last number of years. Many of the documentaries that we watched and that eventually lead us to make the decision to switch to a plant-based diet in January 2016 were on the Netflix platform. Part of what makes alternative streaming services so vital today is vegan content. How many major television stations are giving any air time to the value of being plant-based? Aside from a quick interview every once in awhile on a morning television show, veganism isn't something the general public are exposed to via regular television programming. YouTube does offer huge amounts of content produced by vegans for vegans and certainly a community we not only participate in but encourage others to do as well, but somehow, even in 2020, TV still holds a clout that has yet to be extended to alternative informational avenues.
VegMovies was built by a website design company called Veg Groups. They have created an easy to use browse feature that lets users search by film categories, by the reviews users have left about the film and even goes so far as to support upcoming film projects that have funding pages so viewers can choose to support future films to the platform.
So the next time you are flipping through looking for a great film to watch, consider VegMovies.
