I programmed a series of Claude Jutra and Michel Brault films at the
Harvard Film Archive earlier this year. I contacted the New York
offices of the NFB for prints. They were very slow to respond but when
they did, they were able to provide most of the films I was seeking.
The problem was that most of their material is only available in Beta SP
format. I also contacted the Cinematheque quebecoise and they had one
or two prints I was able to borrow. I am not sure whether they limit
their loans to AMIA-member archives but it would be worth the effort to
contact them to see what is possible. The contacts are listed below.
Best of luck.
