Lunenburg Doc Fest thanks Jost Vineyards for the generous support. As a Festival Partner, Jost contributes to our opening night gala to make it that much more celebratory.

Lunenburg Doc Fest kicks off the festival weekend with an Opening Night Film and a Gala Reception at the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic Ice House Theatre. Directly following the Canadian Premiere of Requiem for the American Dream and a Q&A with producer/director, Kelly Nyks, Festival Pass holders celebrate the opening of the festival and the art of documentary at a gala reception with food, drinks and lively conversation.

Nestled in the gentle hills and sheltered coastal inlets of the Northumberland shores, our winery is Nova Scotia’s largest. A pioneer of the Nova Scotia wine industry, Jost Vineyards produces distinctive wines and styles, which have won hundreds of national and international awards.

Jost creates wines for all occasions and every palate—from the connoisseur to the newest wine taster. We take pride in showing the world that Nova Scotia adds a fresh new dimension to the world of wine. We love our place in the world and find joy in crafting our products—you will enjoy them too.
