Founded in 2013, Lunenburg Doc Fest (LDF) exists to entertain, educate, and inspire by showcasing the art of documentary filmmaking.
We strive to create a cultural connection between audiences and artists in the beautiful town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Lunenburg is a small coastal town with a long heritage, a UNESCO site rich with art and a history in boatbuilding and fishing.
This festival was established to usher in new voices in storytelling while also celebrating established documentary filmmakers. Each September, Lunenburg Doc Fest brings together the audience and the artists … the industry and the sponsors … for a week of groundbreaking full-length and short films.
