Lunenburg Doc Fest is thrilled to bring two new team members on board. Donna Montanchez has joined us in the role of Festival Production Coordinator, and Evan Bower as Media Coordinator.

Donna has been working in the arts sector for many years. While she enjoys all the arts, and loves experimenting with her hodgepodge collection of analog cameras, it’s her love of film that drives her. Besides teaching film studies at Dalhousie and programming for Carbon Arc Independent Cinema, she also teaches yoga and is an animal rights advocate.

Evan is a Halifax-based writer and podcast producer originally from Lunenburg, NS. He’s a graduate of St. Thomas University and Humber College’s School for Writers who served as the Arts & Entertainment reporter at LighthouseNOW for two years. In 2017, his work earned two Newspapers Atlantic award nominations, including one for Outstanding Editorial.

Now, our growing team has its sights set on expanding Doc Fest’s offerings and crafting an exciting program for this year’s fifth-annual festival.
