Lunenburg Doc Fest is pleased to offer FREE ADMISSION to youth 12 and under for the Youth/Family program, including the premieres of short documentaries created during our FREE YOUTH WORKSHOP and the I AM ELEVEN screening.


“insightful, funny and moving documentary portrait of childhood”


From an orphanage in India, to a single-parent household in inner-city Melbourne, to bathing with elephants in Thailand, I AM ELEVEN explores the lives and thoughts of children from 15 countries. I AM ELEVEN weaves together deeply personal and at times hilarious portraits of what it means to sit at this transitional age. These young minds provide us with a powerful insight into the future of our world.


1:00pm @ The Pearl Theatre, 37 Hall Street, Lunenburg
