We love the NFB… and we’re not alone

by Siobhan
January 22, 2010

The National Film Board of Canada, perhaps better known as the NFB, has had a banner year.

Last year they launched the NFB Screening Room, where they've posted tons of films online for anyone to watch - so far there are close to 1,500 films on the site.

In the spirit, they're sharing their stats about how the program is going so far. The response has been amazing: 3.7 million total online film views since they launched a year ago. 2.2 million of those views (59%!) were in Canada alone. In a time of seemingly endless budget cuts to the Arts, it's really heartening to see such enthusiasm for Canadian creativity.

You can read more about NFB's success on their blog, where they also list the 10 most popular films on the site this year -- nice to see that The Log Driver’s Waltz is still going strong!
