The National Film Board of Canada’s Mediatheque in Toronto is turning into an interactive hub.

Reflecting the NFB’s digital production commitment, the space’s redesign will see ceiling-mounted projectors, floor-to-ceiling screen and a new audio system to showcase new content based on NFB productions.

It will also be used for hosting exhibits, screenings, workshops, camps and private event rental.

The Mediatheque will also offer access to NFB.ca, the NFB Interactive portal and its Online Screening Room. Visitors will also be able to connect with a webcam-fitted touchscreen to record feedback on their experience and take their suggestions on what they’d like to see.

The interactive hub is slated to open in early April.
