The National Film Board of Canada is going into the book business.
The NFB is translating its celebrated works from the screen – to the printed page – in a partnership with Firefly Books.

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.
