The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) recently launched its online Screening Room making over 700 of its films, trailers, and clips freely available to view online.
Created in honour of the NFB's 70th anniversary, the Screening Room includes animation, documentaries, experimental films, and alternative dramas.
The selection is intended to "showcase films that take a stand on issues of global importance that matter to Canadians" and covers a range of topics from the environment to the arts.
The films are browsable by title, author, and keyword, with the option to limit by language, genre, year, and length, as well as by whether or not the films are accessible with closed captioning and described video.
There is also a selection of playlists available to view, including guest playlists and those compiled by theme and by film experts. They include many "old favourites" — such as the Log Driver's Waltz — that are definitely worth a revisit.
