As it has been done for the while now, the last Thursday of the month, a new documentary picked by the members of the Punto de Vista team will be screened at the Navarra Film Library.
With July and August gone, the registration period for films in the official selection of the Punto de Vista Festival has one more month to go. The deadline is late September. More than 500 short and feature films have already been submitted.
Ana Herrera, Executive Director of the Punto de Vista Festival, joined late last July the newly elected Government of Navarra.
Untitled, black and white, anonymous. The photograph chosen to announce Punto de Vista International Documentary Film Festival was taken in the 1950s by a tourist visiting a cave in France, the “Gouffre de Padirac”, at the Occitan Pyrenees. Little else is known about it. It shows some nuns on a boat sailing across one of the cave’s ponds. Time and destiny wanted it to land in a flea market in Paris and come to the hands of the organisers of Punto de Vista last summer.
Punto de Vista is now calling for films to enter the Official Selection (entitled “The Central Region”) of its 10th edition. The terms and conditions as well as the registration form are available on the festival’s website. Registration deadline is September 30.
The Punto de Vista Festival team has made an extremely positive balance of the ninth edition, marked by its new venue in Baluarte and its return to being an annual event.
A new screening of Around the world with Orson Welles will be shown on Sunday 15th at 6.30pm in Gola Room. The tickets for the screening on Saturday are sold out. These tickets for the new projection can be purchased at the ticket office in Baluarte and also online.
A second screening of El otro mapa de Abauntz will be shown on Saturday 14th at 10.30pm in Gola Room. The tickets for the first screening are sold out. These tickets for the new projection can be purchased at the ticket office in Baluarte and also online.
Iosseliani will visit Punto de Vista
The Georgian filmmaker, Otar Iosseliani, will be the final guest of honour at the Punto de Vista Festival and will be here on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th to present a selection of his documentary work and to give a Master Class on his films.
Tickets for the different screening sessions of the 9th edition of the Punto de Vista festival can be purchased in advance as of Monday 2nd February at 11am.
