The Punto de Vista International Documentary Film Festival will once more be held every year as of 2015. The Government of Navarra considers that the annual dynamic is better suited for an event of the characteristics of a film festival such as Punto de Vista. To do so, the provincial government is committed to make a budgetary effort and organise this event in conjunction with the Fundación Baluarte. Therefore, in 2015, the festival’s production will be co-organised with the Fundación Baluarte, whilst the management will be the responsibility of the Department of Culture of the Government of Navarra.
After the Punto de Vista festival had been held uninterruptedly for seven editions, from 2005 until 2011, it was agreed to make Punto de Vista biennial in subsequent editions. Therefore, the festival would be held every two years. In order not to disappear from the map for 24 consecutive months, the management body of the festival decided to develop seminars every other year (2012 and 2014).
The 9th edition of the Punto de Vista Navarra International Documentary Film Festival will be held from 10th to 15th February 2015 at the Navarra Auditorium and Conference Centre, Baluarte. It will be the first edition under the artistic management of the filmmaker, Oskar Alegria (director of La casa Emak Bakia), who was responsible for the second International Seminar in 2014, and succeeds Josetxo Cerdán, at the helm of Punto de Vista in its final stage. The festival has dual management: one executive and another artistic, whereby the latter is renewed every four years.
