National Film Board of Canada – Holiday Films

The National Film Board of Canada has many free, streaming, short holiday films available on their website. Just click on the player below to view!

The Story of Christmas, Evelyn Lambart, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

The Story of Christmas
Director: Evelyn Lambart
1973 / 8 Minutes

This short animation tells the familiar story of Christmas in an innovative and colourful way. Filmmaker Evelyn Lambart uses glowing zinc cut-outs to give this traditional tale a contemporary twist. Akin to a joyful medieval manuscript, the film is embellished by the artist’s own whimsy—heraldic trumpet sounds, luminescent light, and wildflowers in every scene tell the message of rebirth. A film without dialogue. (From NFB website)

The Great Toy Robbery, Jeff Hale, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

The Great Toy Robbery
Director: Jeff Hale
1963 / 6 Minutes

This short animation stars the world’s most-wanted good guy: Santa Claus. In this spoof of the Wild West, good triumphs over evil, but not before the evil robbers and their innocent victims have romped through some odd situations. (From NFB website)

Christmas Cracker, Jeff Hale, Norman McLaren, Grant Munro & Gerald Potterton, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

Christmas Cracker
Directors: Jeff Hale, Norman McLaren, Grant Munro & Gerald Potterton
1963 | 9 min

This short animation consists of three segments that take a playful look at Christmas: a rendition of “Jingle Bells” in which paper cut-out figures dance, a dime-store rodeo of tin toys, and a story of decorating the perfect Christmas tree. This holiday film received many awards and an Oscar nomination. (From NFB website)
