The NFB Interactive production team uses a tablet computer to show Robert Redford the interactive webdoc Bear 71 at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

Social issues

Our productions explore issues of global importance: the environment, human rights, international conflict, health care, and more. They give a voice to the underrepresented. They celebrate diversity and build bridges between cultures, while advancing the role of women in cinema. They make a positive difference in people’s lives.

The NFB is a leader in developing and distributing timely, quality educational media. We’re an important partner in the development of minority language communities across Canada. We work with persons with disabilities to give them the skills they need to tell their own stories. And we’re a world leader in creating award-winning media for and by Indigenous peoples.
