About this playlist

On May 27, 2009, an exhibition of 24 photos from NFB films was launched in Ottawa celebrating our 70th anniversary. These 24 images, chosen to represent the NFB's past, present and future, will be showcased in the city where the NFB was founded by cinema pioneer John Grierson in 1939. These are some of the films associated with those images, along with a special commemorative film entitled NFB 70 Years.
