On the eve of the summer holidays, the NFB offers a brief overview of its last fiscal year, in terms of both creation of works and distribution to the public.

For Claude Joli-Coeur, Government Film Commissioner and Chair of the NFB, it is the collective talent and efforts of NFB artists, craftspeople, collaborators, co-producers and employees that account for the year’s success.
