The NFB/ONF has an internationally renowned reputation, especially for documentary and animation. In its seventy-two years of existence, they have received over 5,000 film awards. They have received seventy Academy Award nominations - just about one every year - and won twelve, most recently for the animated short films The Danish Poet by Torill Kove and Ryan by Chris Landreth.
