Got a favourite NFB film? We’d love to put it online…



To prepare for our launch last January, our in-house film experts (aka collection analysts) Albert Ohayon and Marc St-Pierre selected a large number of NFB films to be included in the online Screening Room. Over the past months, we’ve been adding these titles to the site (about 3-5 per week) and will continue to do so through the summer months.

Being experts in their field, Albert and Marc were very organized in their approach, ensuring that there was a balance between new releases and old classics. They wanted to be sure that there was a good representation of the collection‘s content on a wide variety of topics. Their meticulous approach paid off huge – we now have a wonderful collection of films online for everyone to enjoy.

But now that we have a solid foundation to build on, we need your help.

We’re asking all of you to submit the titles of your favourite NFB films, the ones you’d like to see in the Screening Room. We cannot guarantee that all of the films will be included in this round of programming (September/October 2009) because sometimes the rights (read: legal red tape) pose a problem. However, we’re here to serve you and there’s no better way for us to do that than to include your favourites on the site.

So over the next few months, please send me your suggestions via the comment box on this blog and I’ll forward the titles to our experts. I know you all have your favourites, I just can’t wait to see what they are.
