Warclouds in the Pacific, which warned of an imminent Japanese attack, was released just one week before the attack on Pearl Harbor. The film was part of the Canada Carries On series.[1]

It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary (Short Subject), losing to another NFB documentary directed by Stuart Legg, Churchill's Island.[2][3]
