Today, the NFB launched the Indigenous Cinema, an NFB Web page offering free streaming of more than 200 new and classic titles from its unparalleled collection of films by Indigenous directors — including 20 new and recently added films.

Indigenous Cinema now makes it easier than ever to find Indigenous stories and perspectives, searchable by subject, director’s name or Indigenous people or nation, along with curated and contextualized playlists for different age levels, plus filmmaker biographies.

Among the offerings are a number of animated projects including SPARK ANIMATION Alumni Amanda Strong’s Naked Island – Hipster Headdress, Diane Obomsawin’s I Like Girls and Jesse Gouchey’s Baaaad Dream among many others.

The full selection of projects can be found on the NFB’s Indigenous Cinema page.
