About this site

Welcome to NFB.ca, the National Film Board of Canada's award-winning online Screening Room, featuring over 5,000 productions.

Films on this site can be streamed free of charge, or downloaded for your personal use for a small fee. We also offer educational works on a subscription basis to schools and institutions.

Our Collection includes documentaries, animations, experimental films, fiction and interactive works. We showcase films that take a stand on issues of global importance that matter to Canadians—stories about the environment, human rights, international conflict, the arts and more.

We also have a selection of animated films for both adults and children from talented filmmakers such as Cordell Barker, Chris Landreth, Ryan Larkin, Richard Condie, Ishu Patel, Caroline Leaf, and others.

You'll discover new releases, old favourites and Canadian classics along with works from many of Canada's legendary directors. We have films for all ages, in both French and English.
