Unscripted Twillingate: September 19 - 22, 2018

We have just wrapped up a successful 2017 Unscripted Twillingate Digital Arts Festival: four days of celebrating digital creativity through interactive workshops, learning from professionals and each other, creating, sharing and celebrating digital arts. Mark the date for next year: 19 – 22 September 2018!

Blended with adventure on Twillingate Island – foraging, feasting, being entertained we made new friends and experiences to remember!

The Unscripted Festival has something for everyone: whether you create content with a smart phone, an iPad or high-end gear; whether you are a wannabe, a social media nut, a hobbyist or are really good at it!

This year the Filmmaking workshop delivered this great documentary about Georgina Stirling in just 2and a half days:
