If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the National Film Board Of Canada’s site. They’ve put their archives online for free, so we’re able to watch a bunch of great films right on the web.
To put this in perspective, about 15 years ago I heard about the film Cree Hunters Of Mistassini. I looked around for it, tried interlibrary loan, and eventually gave up. Then when I got on the internet, I heard about it some more and even found a copy for sale, but it was $150. Now, it’s available for free, along with many other great documentaries about the bush life and other topics.
There are 541 free films online as of this blog post. Tonight I’m going to watch Waterwalker, a film by the late canoeist, author and film maker Bill Mason.
