Obviously Youtube has become the goto place for how-to videos and filmmaking is no exception. In fact there are an extraordinary amount of filmmaking channels. Some range from simply Camera Reviews, Visual Effect Tutorials and more. So let me guide you through some of the best and what you should watch from them.
(note: they are not in any particular order and may change from time to time.... The Titles are links)
Although many filmmaking channels contain a single host talking about their personal experiences which allows you to understand their way of filmmaking very deeply, FilmCourage has an interview style of videos where they interview professionals in the fields of writing, director and even acting. It offers a great amount of wisdom from many people and is one of the channels you should be subscribed to.
I have been watching Film Riot since I started making films. Film Riot has an episode every Monday and Thursday. With the Monday often being a Q&A, Short Film Suggestion and occasionally a "Monday Challenge" in which people can win prizes for creating short films and submitting them. They are easily one of my favorite channels, however they have been recently losing some focus and many of their newer stuff is mainly After Effects tutorials. Saying that, they are still worth a watch to understand more about filmmaking and some of their older stuff is the best tutorials anywhere.
Although IndyMogul has recently been canceled they still have some of the best filmmaking episodes. (maybe after FilmRiot) However while the show IndyMogul has been canceled, the hosts live on in their own Youtube Channels....
While Philip Bloom does not have any tutorials, Philip Bloom is well known in the Film world for his camera review and beautiful cinematography. Philip Bloom's videos are great for understanding things that can't be learned like composition and technical things like which camera should I buy. Bellow is an example of some of his wonderful cinematography.
