The Lunenburg Doc Fest team extends our heartfelt thanks to the community, audience, and partners who made our 10th annual festival a success!  We were delighted to reconnect with fellow film enthusiasts on-site, and welcome back that much-missed “festival feel”.  A special thank you to the loyal supporters who join us every year— we wouldn’t be here without you.

As we wrap 2023 and welcome a new year, we hope you enjoy a time of peace, relaxation and reconnection with loved ones throughout the holiday season.

From all of us at Doc Fest, best wishes for a safe, healthy and happy holiday!
