About the Canadian Film Institute:
The CFI's mandate is to encourage and promote the production, diffusion, study, appreciation, and use of moving images for cultural and educational purposes in Canada and abroad. To this end, it organizes ongoing public film programming, distributes a small collection of films, and is involved in the publication of books and monographs on various aspects of Canadian cinema.
The Canadian Film Institute (CFI) was incorporated in 1935 as a federally-chartered, non-governmental, non-profit cultural organization. It is the oldest film institution in Canada and the second oldest film institute in the world.
