NFB films on iPad & iPhone

The National Film Board of Canada collection of over 1,000 documentaries, animations and feature films have been made freely available for online viewing via the NFBC website for some time, but an app has now been released that allows them to be viewed on an iPad.

Films can also be stored on the iPad for up to 48 hours to watch when you’re away from a WiFi zone. The app is available for free download via iTunes or the free downloads page on the NFBC website.  It has the same features as the previously released iPhone app, but has been optimized to take advantage of the inherent qualities of the iPad. Films can be browsed by channel/category or searched by title and bookmarked. Split-screen technology allows users to browse related content while viewing a film.
