Did you know that the National Film Board’s Online Screening Room is now licensed for non-theatrical, public performance use at SFU? That means that the hundreds of Canadian-produced films and documentaries freely available online (in streaming video format) from this site can be screened in your classroom anytime: http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca/CRDB/BVAS/resource/9294
“The NFB’s online Screening Room provides free viewing of over 700 productions, films, trailers and clips from the NFB’s world-renowned collection. Coverage ranges from historical films dating back to 1928 to current contemporary releases, including award-winning documentaries, animation and fiction. The online Screening Room also features Playlists, where users can find suggestions from film experts and filmmakers. New films will be added each week.”
Many NFB films are also available in DVD format from the Library’s Media Resource Centre (located on the 3rd floor of the Bennett Library) and can be booked for classroom use. For more information, contact email@example.com.
