Film Club

Get your popcorn, we’ve got the films.

OECTA in partnership with the National Film Board invite you to take part in our Premier Film Club. The film focus for this school year is Indigenous Film. Each of the featured films will showcase an Indigenous producer documenting current day Indigenous issues. Whether you are seeking information for your own personal or professional learning or looking for opportunities to incorporate film into your classroom, you are sure to find these films helpful.

Check out the National Film Board website https://www.nfb.ca/ for access to an extensive repository of films that take a stand on issues of global importance that matter to Canadians -- stories about the environment, human rights, international conflict the arts and more. If you are interested in learning how to get a school or district-wide membership to the National Film Board, contact Kevin Chlebovec at: k.chlebovec@nfb.ca.

Join the National conversation by connecting with teachers across Canada through the NFB Film Club Facebook Page.

Register for one or all of our upcoming Film Clubs.
