We’ve compiled the best, must-watch National Film Board (NFB) films that tell the Canadian story.  From iconic classics like The Sweater to modern takes on what it’s like to experience being new to Canada in From Far Away and Le violon chinois these films create a woven tapestry of the cultures and experiences that make up the Canadian identity. A rare treat, these are films you can’t find at your local movie theatre.  Come experience Canadiana at its finest and explore what it means to be Canadian.

Courts-métrages ONF:

Nous avons sélectionné quatre des meilleurs courts-métrages d’animation de l’Office national du film (ONF). Des classiques emblématiques tels que Le chandail et Maq et l’Esprit de la forêt aux histoires des nouveaux arrivants au Canada dans Le violon chinois, cette série de courts-métrages crée une tapisserie tissée des cultures et des expériences qui composent l’identité canadienne. Un plaisir rare, ce sont des films que vous ne pouvez pas trouver à votre cinéma local.
