Canada Post Releases Stamps to Celebrate NFB’s 75th Anniversary

To commemorate the National Film Board of Canada’s 75th anniversary, Canada Post released a set of five stamps this month that celebrate the government-run studio’s films. Two of the five stamps are related to animated films: John Weldon’s Log Driver’s Waltz (1979) and Norman McLaren’s Neighbors (1962). A third stamp features animator Gerald Potterton’s live-action short The Railrodder (1965), which starred Buster Keaton in one of his last leading roles. Watch all of the films on the NFB website or order the stamps on the Canada Post website.
