We love culture. This is why one of our priorities is to support any initiative that promotes it.
Since opening our hotels, we have been permanent collaborators in prestigious music festivals such as Sónar, and Primavera Sound, etc. We have also sponsored many other film-based festivals, such as the famous In-edit Festival, D’A Film Festival, and SoundEat!, etc. We are also often used as their accreditation centre and meeting point for the media, and a place where the opening and closure events are held.
It is no surprise that we have become the “official hotel” for many directors and producers, who choose our Pulitzer and Regina hotels as a place to stay. Even the odd Nobel laureate in literature has visited the Pulitzer Hotel!

Every spring, the D’A Film Festival in Barcelona offers an in-depth review of today’s world film scene, offering the audience the chance to enjoy a series of successful, internationally famous films that have received awards from critics and the public, combined with new talents and films, both international and local.
In just six years, the D’A has become a go-to event for the best independent and experimental films currently made around the world. The festival is a cultural event that already has deep roots in the city of Barcelona, a unique experience that combines screenings, the presence of directors and dialogue with the audience through a series of talks and workshops open to everyone.
