Looking Back – Doc Fest 2022

September 22-28, 2022

The ninth Lunenburg Doc Fest showcased over 80 Canadian and international documentaries, the largest film program to date. This year’s edition took place in person, September 22 to 28, and online. Due to the effects of Hurricane Fiona, online viewing extended through Friday, September 30.

The festival opened with Buffy Sainte-Marie: Carry It On, a new documentary and retrospective on Buffy Sainte-Marie’s impactful career and life, and an exploration of what it is like to be ahead of the times as an artist and a person. The Black & White Gala to follow, co-presented by RBC, was a lively kick off to celebrate the return of on-site programming and reconnecting with film enthusiasts in person.

The Dock Market took place fully online, September 22-28. The festival’s seventh conference and market for industry stakeholders hosted a range of professional development sessions including 1-to-1 meetings, On Deck round tables, workshops, spotlight conversations, and panels.

We acknowledge the support of the Government of Canada.
