Where can I find free font alternatives to commercial ones?

I need a few fonts for a video I’m editing, but buying them is off budget. I know there are a bunch of free fonts out there, but I can’t figure out how can I find them by likeness.

Example: I need something near Kabel font, but how I find it without looking hundreds of pages of free fonts? Is there any font comparison service that includes free fonts?

    I use the WhatTheFont service then google "fontname.ttf + torrent"

    MyFonts has a great collection of high-quality, free fonts available for download. You're best option would be to search by the type of font (sans, sans-serif, slab, handwriting/script)

    You can use filters on the site and make sure you add one with Price At Most 0 so it will only come up with free options.

    Thank you for your sugestions. Identifont is near to what I'm looking for. Unfortunately, it doesn't include free fonts. But combining with free font sites would be a good idea.
