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

Quebec-Atlantic Studio

With boots on the ground in St. John’s, Halifax and Montreal, our twelve person studio team works with filmmakers and co-producers across English language Quebec, the four Atlantic provinces and Nunatsiavut. Feature and short form documentary make up the lion’s share of our production slate. About 20% of our slate is animation, hybrid animation-documentary and interactive stories. As part of our commitment to representational equity behind and in front of the camera, we create select training opportunities in craft positions for individuals from underrepresented communities annually.

We typically have about 25 projects underway at any point in time – projects that reflect the characteristics of our geography and the storytellers who call it home. We aim to produce impactful cinema that is distinctly Canadian and contributes to our humanity here and around the globe. We look for deeply local stories that go beyond the parameters of location and for international stories that reverberate “at home”.

2019 studio releases include Rogerio Soares’ feature doc River Silence  (a coproduction with EyeSteel Film), Teresa McInnes, Nance Ackerman and Ariella Pahlke’s feature doc Conviction (a co-production with Sea to Sea Productions), Ellie Yonova’s debut feature doc Luben and Elena, Alanis Obomsawin’s 53rd film Jordan River Anderson: The Messenger, Ariel Nasr’s feature doc The Forbidden Reel (a co-production with Loaded Pictures), and short films by Deanne Foley (Radical), Sandi Rankaduwa (Ice Breakers) Rachel Bower (I Am Skylar), and Jason Young (Gun Killers).
