    Default kinds of film

    Hello,

    I'd like to ask for help in connection with two kinds of films.

    What do we call a film about animals, plants, wildlife etc.?
    Is it right to refer to them as 'nature films'.

    Another film-related question that has made me puzzled is whether it is correct to call films that teach the viewers something (e.g., something about history, something about a famous discovery) 'educational films'.

    Normally, I would just say 'documentary' referring to both two types I mentioned above, but in Hungarian, for example, we do use all three phrases (nature film, educational film, documentary), meaning three different kinds of films.

    Thank you for your help!!
