New Features Added to the Web Site


The New Year is coming and with it, a new face for the Web site. As we get ready for our official launch, we’ve made some changes to the site:

Our new search engine, powered by Google, gives better results. Not only does it display the videos we have online, it also displays all the NFB Web pages related to them.

We’ve added the corporate Web site to the footer on our homepage. Now it’s easier to access our news stories, the Web pages for individual films and everything else the NFB has to offer.

We’ve put in a new video player with lots of features to explore.

Some of our films now have closed captioning (CC) and descriptive video (DV). Soon we’ll have a complete list of these films available.

The sidebar on our film pages has changed. Now it gives suggestions for films related by topic and director. In addition, there are direct links to buy these films from our online store.

Your viewing history now displays – at a glance – all the videos you’ve watched during your last visits.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the site. Check out the features on the video player, explore the film pages, and give us your two cents.
