The communitarian and the artistic associated with an idea of justice that affects both human beings and the environment in which we are immersed is present, in different ways, at the heart of this year's two retrospectives.
Artists in focus present monographic programs by artists working with the moving image that are rarely exhibited in non-fiction film festival contexts.
Contactos opens cinema up to the other artistic disciplines and knowledge-related activities we call science. This is especially relevant when thinking about documentary cinema, which by definition is oriented towards reflection and knowledge, and shares an interest in investigating reality with the other contemporary arts.
Each year, since 2010, Punto de Vista has been inviting three filmmakers to submit a project for a documentary essay film to be shot in Navarra. The festival aims to offer emerging filmmakers the opportunity to create a new project while, at the same time, bringing new voices from the non-fiction scene to Navarra.
Audience training and community work in Pamplona are some of Punto de Vista’s central objectives. Aimed primarily at young audiences, this programme proposes a series of activities to raise awareness and audiovisual appreciation.
