The NFB during COVID-19: read the Commissioner's letter.


Directed by Michele Pearson Clarke
Produced by Justine Pimlott

In 1969, Canada passed Bill C-150 into law, which partially decriminalized homosexuality in Canada. Fifty years later, the NFB presents Five@50, a unique collection of five-minute shorts reflecting on contemporary LGBTQ2+ lives and identities. These intimate documentaries range from personal reflection to cultural history, and include experimental forms, animation, and dramatization.

Featuring films by Michèle Pearson Clarke, Thirza Cuthand, Tiffany Hsiung, Vivek Shraya and Michael V. Smith.
