NFB Memories - Jacques Bensimon

A series of interviews with NFB artisans (filmmakers, producers, technicians, etc.) coupled with archival footage recounting the infancy of cinema, Memories of the NFB is a project that seeks to track the role of the Film Board since its inception while paying homage to the art of filmmaking at large.

In this excerpt, lateformer NFB commissioner Jacques Bensimon, who headed the Film Board from 2001 to 2006, recalls coming into the NFB as a director in the early 1960s, at a time when the institution was seeking to broaden its horizons and expand its reach.
