Festival start: 19 May 2023      Festival end: 21 May 2023

VinartFest is a multidisciplinary art event around the culture of wine and its symbolism that will celebrate its fourth edition in May 2023. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the first and second editions were celebrated online, even though the festival was created as a presential event to take place in the hamlet of Las Ventas de Alcolea, between Albacete and Cuenca province.
VinartFest wants to be a meeting point for diverse artistic expressions, gathered around the same common thread: the creative and evocative power of wine and its culture.
The Festival is articulated around a dual objective: to showcase the cultural riches that the wine universe possesses, as well as to empower a rural area that has become depopulated and is a testimony to the “emptied Spain”. The festival is an initiative of the non-profit association, Asociación Cultural de Las Ventas de Alcolea.
As part of the event, la Asociación Cultural de las Ventas de Alcolea, has convened the IV Contest of Micro-Rrelato, Photography and Short Films VinartFest 2023, which will join the rest of the activities that will be scheduled within the framework of the Festival.

The First Prize will consist of 500 euros and a diploma.The prize is sponsored by Don Octavio winary from Villarrobledo.

There will be only one winner and the prize can only be left vacant, the jury will be reserving, in case there is no more than one participant and these lack technical quality. Jury rulings will be final.
