People are self-isolating across the country to flatten the curve of the Covid-19 pandemic but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay occupied.

The National Film Board of Canada has over 4,000 films, documentaries and short pieces available to stream for free and this includes a rich library of Indigenous content.

In March 2018, the National Film Board of Canada launched a cinema collection of over 200 films by Indigenous directors — part of a three-year Indigenous Action Plan to “redefine” the NFB’s relationship with Indigenous peoples.

We’ve compiled a list, while not exhaustive, of films you can stream for free through the NFB website. Be sure to go online to access the full library available at no charge.
