Produce with the NFB

Institutional Program

Who are we?

The National Film Board of Canada is a public producer and distributor of Canadian audiovisual content. Its mandate is to challenge Canadians and people worldwide by producing bold, innovative works that reflect Canadian values and points of view.


The mission of the Institutional Program is to create new financing, production, distribution and exploitation opportunities for innovative works with traditional and non-traditional partners.


Alongside traditional and non-traditional partners, imagine, develop, finance, produce and distribute works in new formats, genres and markets.

Develop new business models and new specialized markets for distribution and exploitation to foster the creation of new works and the redeployment and visibility of the NFB collection.

Innovation and collaboration

In the Institutional Program, innovation is achieved through close collaboration among the various NFB departments and programs, as well as with such partners as Space for Life, the Ville de Montréal, Parks Canada, the Canadian Museum of Nature, and NHK.
