The artistic director of the Punto de Vista Festival, Oskar Alegria, has been invited to form part of two of the most important documentary juries in Europe. Last week, Alegria participated in the Visions du Réel Festival, which has just closed its 45th edition in Nyon, Switzerland, as a jury member of the Regard Neuf section, which presented the debut films of 19 international filmmakers. Our artistic director was accompanied on the jury by the Portuguese producer, Luis Urbano, and the Italian filmmakers, Massimo D´Anolfi and Martina Parenti.
On Wednesday 28th May, Punto de Vista presents a new session of the FOCO Punto de Vista cycle, a space to present up-to-date, non-fiction films from all over the world, at the Navarra Film Library. On this occasion, Les Films Rêvés / Dreaming Films (2010) by the Belgian filmmaker, Eric Pauwels, will be screened.
