The previous edition of the Getxophoto photography festival included the graphic presence of the paper clocks published as part of the latest book by Punto de Vista. The organisers of this festival commissioned the exhibition, displaying throughout the month of September, in one of their rooms, the 12 examples of the clock faces drawn by patients with memory problems, showing how their loss mainly affects the beginning of the notion of time.
The film by Andrés Duque, Oleg y las raras artes, earned a special award at the film festival held in the French border town of Cerbère. This picture, which tells the story of pianist and musician Oleg Karavachiuk, was the film chosen by the Punto de Vista Festival this year to represent its 2016 edition.
The deadline for entries to the Punto de Vista festival closed in September, having been open for the three summer months. For the third year running, the festival has received over a thousand entries for its official section, highlighting, as pointed out by its artistic director Oskar Alegria, "the good health and growing international interest in this film festival".
As many as 850 short and feature films from a variety of countries have been registered so far. Now they are being viewed for selection by the members of the Programme Committee: Oskar Alegria, Alexei Dmitriev, Özge Calafato, Guillermo García Peydró and Koldo Almandoz.
Punto de Vista is now calling for films to enter the Official Selection (entitled “The Central Region”) of its 11th edition.
The new volume from the Punto de Vista Collection is now for sale on the Internet, through the List of Publications of the Goverment of Navarra’s website with new texts written for the 10th anniversary of the Festival about Time and Cinema.
The Iranian filmmaker, Keywan Karimi, has finally been sentenced to one year imprisonment, 223 lashes and a fine of 20 million Iranian Rial (around 600 euros) for his film, Writing on the City, which was premiered worldwide in the tenth edition of the Punto de Vista Festival, where he was given a Special Mention by the international jury. This is the final sentence which cannot be ap-pealed issued by the Court of Appeal of Iran in recent hours.
