Have you noticed this button on our site? If so, join the others who have made good use of it over the past week. If not, it’s time to get on board. By hitting that button when you watch a film you’ve enjoyed, you can help recommend that film to other users.

Over the past week, the top five recommended films are The Log Driver’s Waltz, The Cat Came Back, Carts of Darkness, Blackfly and The Sweater. Aside from Carts of Darkness, these are all classic NFB animated shorts.

So, either everyone using the recommend button is an animation lover, or you’ve all used the news of our official launch to re-visit some old favourites. And that’s great. But your homework for next week is to discover a new gem – whether it be a new release or an old classic you’ve just never seen before.
