Since its founding in 1939, the NFB has created over 13,000 productions and won more than 5,000 awards, including 11 Oscars® and an Honorary Oscar® in recognition of its 50th anniversary. With more Academy Award® nominations than any other production company or organization outside of Hollywood, the NFB continues to be a pioneer in Canadian cinema.

In 2012, the NFB garnered its 71st and 72nd Oscar® nominations for the short animated films Sunday, by Patrick Doyon, and Wild Life, by Amanda Forbis and Wendy Tilby. This marked the 8th time in the NFB’s history that the institution received a double nomination in the same category.

Most of our nominated and winning films are available for free in our online Screening Room at NFB.ca.
