What is Most Festival?
Most Festival is an international event that regroups the best audiovisual production on winemaking, wine and cava. Also, the festival showcases high-quality filmmaking through the screening of talented directors’ works that have not been commercially released.
Taking place in the Penedès region, and since 2016, in the Priorat region as well (two territories in Catalonia with a long tradition of winemaking and several wine tourism attractions) the festival aims to celebrate arts and wine culture through audiovisual creation, as well as to approach winemaking from all possible angles, while promoting values such as quality, diversity and relationship with the land.
In addition, the Most Festival continues to actively promote wine-culture activities that are organised in both regions during the celebration of the European Day of Wine Tourism (which takes place on the second Sunday of November).
