I can't believe more people don't know about this app. A great way to work you way through the NFBs catalog and there really is something for everyone. I especially love that you can DL films to watch off-line for 48 hrs (but those longer ones take a while to download). Only negative - wish there was a better way to navigate back thru the library after reading a film describe. Every time I do it kicks me back to the beginning of the list.

NFB Making Many Films Unavailable!

Maybe it is because I do not live in Canada. Many, many of your films are not available to watch. Bear

Subtle Gem

I regret that it hadn't occurred too me to write this review before. I love the content variety. Something for every one I imagine. If you are sensitive you'll surely find something to offend you because it has films of many things and at times films with opposing points. My recommendation? Do like me and don't watch the items whose very titles offend you.

The children's content is nice. For me, I love the simple films such as the "how to build an igloo". It was intriguing and I love to see the skill of two Inuit who slap together a nice dwelling in about 2 hours. A tool or two & you have shelter! Shows about an urban gardener. Shows depicting the life of the migrating Eskimo which life is now gone. Great to watch the old ways but I'm sure they are glad for a life of relatively greater comfort. Cree Hunters of Mistassinee (sp?), great. This review is way too long. Just get it. If you don't like it, I'll refund your ...wait it's free!
