It means we’ll see a series of literary adaptations of NFB animated and documentary films and media projects.
This fall’s inaugural program features the publication of a pair of children’s books adapted from Oscar-nominated films; “The Cat Came Back” by Cordell Barker and “My Grandmother Ironed the King’s Shirts” by Torill Kove.
The autumn release also includes “George Hunter’s Canada; Iconic Images from Canada’s Most Prolific Photographer,” – featuring the work of the late pioneering photojournalist.
In its 78-year history, the NFB has produced more than 13,000 animated films, documentaries, fiction features and interactive productions.
The agency has won more than 5,000 awards, including 12 Oscars.
