Lunenburg Doc Fest took place 100% online in 2020!

By shifting to a streaming platform for the 2020 Festival, a remarkable lineup of documentaries reached viewers across Canada and also made programming available for our U.S. audience. The virtual nature of the Festival and schedule flexibility appealed to an expanded audience and a 50% increase in pass holders from the  previous year.

Lunenburg Doc Fest showcases documentary films that entertain, educate and inspire, creating a cultural experience and place of connection between filmmakers and film enthusiasts in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. The Festival features fact-based cinematic stories from the Atlantic and across the globe, inviting us to see the world from different points of view.
