    Using I find it~ is stating your observation on something or someone

    you can say that in different ways:
    I find this documentary interesting (or: I find it interesting)

    interesting here means you like it, it excites you, it gets youre attention, your interest: kawili-wili, pagkagiliw, pagkagusto, interes or interesado
    (1) Ang dokumentaryong ito ay kagiliw-giliw.
    (2) Ito ay kawili-wili.
    (3) Interesado ako sa dokumentaryong ito.
    Again, all of these are bae from your obsrvation, so you can also add i think o "sa tingin ko"


    when you you mean it to a person like your sentence: I find this girl very sweet, you can translate it in tagalog like this:
    (1) Sa tingin ko, malambing siyang babae. (I think she's a sweet girl)
    (2) Sa palagay ko, siya (girl) ay malambing. (I think she's sweet)
    (3) Mukhang malambing siyang babae. (she looks like a sweet girl)

    The closest translation I could think of is something like these. It's a more passive expression compared to its English counterpart, and probably less frequent to come up in conversations. Depends on context, of course.

    Nagagandahan ako sa dokyumentaryong ito.
    I find this documentary interesting/good.

    Nababaitan ako sa kanya.
    I find him/her nice.
