National Film Board of Canada (NFB)

National Film Board of Canada (NFB)
Canadian department of film production.

It was established in 1939 and directed by John Grierson (1898–1972), who developed the studio into a leading producer of documentaries, including the World War II propaganda films Canada Carries On and The World in Action. The studio also made high-quality animated movies by Norman McLaren (1914–87) and others, and it later expanded to produce feature films, including The Luck of Ginger Coffey (1964), The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974), and The Company of Strangers (1990).
