CAMPUS. Learning is our favourite subject.

The National Film Board of Canada has been a trusted educational resource for over seven decades. Today, thousands of NFB titles in every form and genre—from documentary to animation, feature film to interactive—are instantly available online. NFB productions rack up more than 14 million views every year.

And now our 21st-century teaching tools are more accessible than ever. Through CAMPUS, educators have an immense bank of innovative teaching resources at their fingertips. Our guides, playlists and sharing features allow you to easily tailor lesson plans to your students’ needs.

CAMPUS can turn any setting into an educational setting. Classrooms, homes, libraries, resource centres, offices and even boardrooms suddenly become places where learning comes to life.

You’ve heard of book smart. Now there’s movie smart.

Access the best Canadian productions faster than you can say “maple leaf.”

Documentaries, animated films, interactive productions and shorts in English and in French… we offer close to a thousand titles that you won’t find anywhere else. The latest releases and bestselling educational titles are also available to our subscribers at no extra cost.

Find what you want faster than you can say “ah-ha!”

Simply search the NFB collection by age and subject area to quickly identify suitable films and resources. Our educational film descriptions are written by Canadian teachers and are designed to help you easily select the material you need.

Knowledge has a highlight reel.

CAMPUS allows users to create their own chapters, playlists and film descriptions, making it simple to prepare lessons in advance. So you can edit out the sections of the film you don’t need, taking less time to illustrate your point and connect with your students.

Great minds are always expanding. So is our collection.

New films and resources are added to CAMPUS every quarter. Our team works with Canadian educators to determine the latest themes and trends in education. And we don’t stop there. We speak with educators every day to ensure that our teaching tools respond to educators’ needs. We then develop resources that are topical, keeping educators well-informed on the issues that matter.

Our search results produce results

Get students thinking by getting them talking
