Tom Perlmutter, the head of the NFB, is heading out on a cross-Canada tour. The tour is meant to allow him, and the NFB, to connect with Canadians. He’ll talk about the new directions we’re heading in, take your questions and talk about ways in which we can better interact.

For the past 70 years, the NFB has been telling stories that matter to Canadians – whether it be in the form of documentary, animation or fiction. Our films are inherently Canadian because they tackle issues close to our hearts and stem from the minds of filmmakers in your community, cities and provinces.

Every person who works at the NFB is intensely aware that we have been charged with the task of telling your stories, and we take that commitment as seriously today as we did 70 years ago.

The tour will take place between September 2010 and October 2011. You’ll find the tour schedule listed below. If your city isn’t listed among the 20 or so stops, don’t worry. We will be opening up a discussion forum on our Facebook page so that anyone who wants to take part in the conversation or ask questions will have the opportunity.

Stay tuned for more details.
