Navarra Film Library hosts another Foco Punto de Vista session at 8pm on Thursday 26th November. On this occasion, the title has been chosen by the L´Atalante Bayonne film programmers, with whom the Punto de Vista Festival enjoys a film exchange in parallel with the twinning of the two cities. The film that those responsible for films in Bayonne will screen in our city is the documentary Pas de nostalgie, camarades (France, 2015). A special session has been organised, which will be attended by its director, the French filmmaker, Isabelle Solas, and Simon Blondeau, Bayonne film representative who has visited us for this purpose on previous occasions.
Punto de Vista is launching a new volunteer campaign for its 10th edition. The Festival needs movie theatre assistants, press and communications staff, hostesses to assist and provide information to guests and the general public.
The Government of Navarra believes annual frequency is adequate for an event like the Punto de Vista Film Festival. Accordingly, the regional authorities are organising next year’s Festival with the cooperation of the Baluarte Foundation, replicating this year’s format.
An old postcard from 1910 showing a leafy tree, a windmill and the silhouettes of two people serving as a measure of the whole. In this quiet landscape, the treetop is brought to life by the wind as the rest of the scene is frozen in the past.
Consolidating its annual frequency and new venue, the Festival will include a Jean-Daniel Pollet retrospective and screen the legendary film The Central Region, with director Michael Snow.
A new documentary picked by the members of the Punto de Vista team will be screened at the Navarra Film Library. On 5 November, the screening will be dedicated to Terra nullius (No Man’s Land, 2012), by Portuguese director Salomé Lamas, who will be there to take part in a discussion of the film. Terra nullius is a documentary based on the confessions of a Portuguese mercenary who fought in the Dirty Wars in Africa, openly talking about his deads and killings (even the price for each dead target) in the French Basque Country. A film about extreme confessions, but takes us to that no man's land where man expresses with the biggest depth and contradictions. A film about the great paradox of being human.
As many as 1378 short and feature films have been submitted for the 10th Punto de Vista Navarra International Documentary Film Festival, to be held at the Baluarte Centre in Pamplona from 8 to 14 February 2016.
The film El otro mapa de Abauntz, by Aitor Gametxo, winner project of the X Films Award 2014 of Punto de Vista, participates in the 15th edition of the Documentary Film Festival DOC Buenos Aires, held from 15 to 28 October in the Argentine capital. Gametxo’s film will be screened in two sessions, on October 15 and 27.
Chez les Basques season, scheduled during the 9th edition of “Punto de Vista” Festival, will be screened from 7 to 15 November in different locations of Iparralde. This way, the season promoted by Punto de Vista and the Basque Cultural Institute of the area, Euskal Kultur Erakundea, gets closer to the place where films were shot and is also enriched by three new titles.
Punto de Vista will participate next Friday, October 9, in the scheduling of the International Centre for Contemporary Art Tabakalera with the screening of the film Letters to Max.
