The Commissioners

| 7 min

Former commissioners of the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) talk about their experiences at the institution. In conjunction with celebrations marking the NFB’s 70th anniversary, director Philippe Baylaucq met with Jacques Bensimon (2001-2006), Sandra M. Macdonald (1995-2001), Joan Pennefather (1989-1994), François N. Macerola (1984-1988) and André Lamy (1975-1979). What are their impressions? A common point emerges: the creative freedom given to artists and the filmmakers’ authenticity of vision.
