The NFB Film Club gives public libraries the opportunity to offer their patrons free screenings of films from the NFB’s rich collection—either in-person at the library, or virtually. In each Film Club program, you’ll find films for both adults and children: new releases exploring hot topics, thought-provoking documentaries, award-winning animation, and a few timeless classics as well.
Joining the NFB Film Club can help you connect with your community, increase the use of your library, boost current patron loyalty and attract new users!
All Canadian public libraries can join the NFB Film Club for free and receive access to seasonal programing. View the current NFB Film Club programs here:

STEP 2. Send your selections by e-mail to Florence François (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include the date, time and location of the screening, as well as the film format required for your venue. We can supply an electronic file (.mp4 or .mov) or ship a physical copy (projection-quality DVD or Blu-ray) for screenings in your library. For virtual screenings, we can provide a hyperlink.
STEP 3. Organize your advertising for the event—promote the screening(s) in your networks.
STEP 4. Prior to your event, use your screening equipment to test the film format delivered to you (digitally or by mail).
