The concept is the same as our “Netflix Recommends” – we’ve taken some of the best films from the Oscar 2017 race and matched them up with NFB films that are similar in theme and subject matter. The idea being…
If you liked La La Land, enjoy The Log Driver’s Waltz
In the mood for a musical? We’ve got the singing, the dancing, and even the catchy tune that won’t leave your head for days. Sure we’ve traded in sunny California for a Northern logging town, but hey! We’ve got animation.
If you liked Arrival, enjoy Invasion of the Space Lobsters
Large aliens resembling marine life, an inability to find a common language and communicate, and a big question mark as to the purpose of their arrival. Sound intriguing? Then you’ll love Invasion of the Space Lobsters.
If you liked Manchester by the Sea, enjoy Nobody Waved Good-bye
If you’re into movies about miscommunication between youth and adults, then this film’s right up your alley. Don Owen’s classic 1960’s drama tells the story of a teenage boy who rebels against his parents’ middle-class goals and conventions.
If you liked Hidden Figures, try Women Space Pioneers
Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson were instrumental in the early days of the NASA space program. In this documentary, we look at the efforts and accomplishments of some of the first women in space, including Sally K. Ride and Jerrie Cobb.
