What is the Unscripted Twillingate Digital Arts Festival?

Unscripted Festival 21 to 24 September 2023

Creativity comes naturally in a place like Twillingate. Where inspiration can be found around every corner, trail, cove, bay, wave and harbour. With light and skies so spectacular, they simply have to be captured and shared. With stories so compelling and rich that they have to be told. With songs and lyrics so enchanting, they have to be sung. With a history of merchants and fishermen with cod as its currency, Twillingate has secrets waiting be discovered.

Since 2015 the Unscripted Twillingate Digital Arts Festival has become a mainstay on the Newfoundland and Labrador annual festival calendar. The festival managed by Grow Twillingate Inc., a not-for-profit organization steered by a volunteer board and seasonal staff.

A Congregation of Creative Spirits

From smartphones to tablet computers, from GoPro action video to light painting, from webcasting to digital sound… Our new stories are more vibrant, clearer, richer, instantaneous and so compelling that it has to be shared with the world – at the push of a button. Atlantic Canada’s first digital arts festival is a congregation of creative spirits, adventurous souls and curious minds who love digital arts, from the most simple to the most complex.
