Did you know that NFB Education updates its films, playlists, and educational offers every week? With so much content constantly being added to our site, we know it can be hard to keep up—especially when you’re busy. With that in mind, we’ve created a handy guide that teachers can reference.

Check back every month for more documentaries, animation, and resource learning materials you can use in the classroom!

Here’s everything new on NFB Education this August!


Open Sky, Portrait of a Pavilion in Venice

Open Sky: Portrait of a Pavilion in Venice, Katerine Giguère, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

An intimate portrait of the Canada Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, an architectural gem designed by Milan’s famous Studio BBPR and recently restored, along with its gardens, by the National Gallery of Canada.

Martha of the North – Long Version

Martha of the North, Marquise Lepage, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

In the mid-1950s, lured by false promises of a better life, Inuit families were displaced by the Canadian government and left to their own devices in the Far North. In this icy desert realm, Martha Flaherty and her family lived through one of Canadian history’s most sombre and little-known episodes.

645 Wellington

645 Wellington, Kaveh Nabatian, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

A stone’s throw from downtown Montreal, quirky artists, blue-collar workers and unconventional families are being forced to leave their old neighbourhood as high-tech firms move in. Like in so many other cities, the tech companies arrive with the promise of a rosy future–but it’s one built on demolitions, evictions and the conversion of low-rent property to high-priced condos.

Shattered Dreams

Shattered Dreams, Wendy Hill-Tout, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

Shattered Dreams is a powerful and emotional exploration of the experiences of a family forced to deal with the tragedy of schizophrenia in a loved one; not once, but twice.

These Forgotten Voices

These Forgotten Voices, Blaise Barrette, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

Here’s a concert with a difference: The fifteen singers all have mental health problems. Yet they’ve recorded a CD and have performed on stage in front of 500 people.
