Punto de Vista 2019 Winners
Navarre documentary film festival Punto de Vista launched in 2010, under Josetxo Cerdan’s direction, a project in order to offer emerging Spanish documentary makers the opportunity to shoot in Navarre a film. The aim of this Project is double: on the one hand, provide directors the possibility to develop new works; on the other hand, those works create a group of pieces which means an approach to new voices of the documentary to the people of Navarre. Thus, over time a polyhedral approach to Navarre will be generated and, at the same time, mainly, X Films Project foster no fiction audio-visual creations and Punto de Vista becomes a must in innovative spirit documentary makers' agenda.
In this sessions, documentary makers will show some parts of their whole work.
