Lunenburg Doc Fest presented a seven-day hybrid program with all films available online plus select in-person events from September 23 to 29. The festival included 21 feature films, seven short documentary programs, livestream filmmaker Q&As, onsite events, and a growing industry market.

Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), a longstanding champion of Canadian creatives, joined the festival as presenting partner for the 8th edition and to launch an opening night social celebration on the town’s waterfront.

The festival introduced its first-ever ‘Docs on the Dock’ open-air screening on the harbour at Lunenburg’s Zwicker Wharf. A range of interactive and in-person screening events showcasing short documentaries by Atlantic Canadian filmmakers as well as non-English content were offered as free community events in the heart of UNESCO Lunenburg.
