The National Film Board of Canada (NFB)

Through its Film Club, the National Film Board of Canada is a priv­i­leged part­ner of pub­lic libraries across the country.

This win­ter, the NFB is pre­sent­ing both clas­sics and new releases in four pro­grams for gen­eral audi­ences and one for children.

To mark Inter­na­tional Women’s Day, March 8, the NFB will be pre­sent­ing screen­ings of the ani­mated short An Artist. In Michèle Cournoyer’s An Artist, a girl demon­strates her gift for music.

Also on offer this win­ter is a pro­gram fea­tur­ing the short films The Vis­i­tor, directed by David Barlow-Krelina as part of the Hot­house 8 pro­gram for emerg­ing ani­ma­tors; and Islet, Nico­las Brault’s whim­si­cal ani­mated ode to the Arctic.

Libraries that screen Islet will be entered into a draw to win the 24-film box set Unikkau­sivut: Shar­ing Our Sto­ries, val­ued at $899.

Chil­dren will love the var­ied pro­gram of five ani­mated films that the NFB has curated for them. It includes HA’Aki by Iriz Pääbo, Sainte Barbe by Claude Bar­ras and Cédric Louis, Christo­pher, Please Clean Up Your Room! by Vin­cent Gau­thier, Glasses by Brian Duch­scherer and the new release Big Mouth by Andrea Dorfman.
