Expanding the concept of documentary beyond film screenings. This is the main purpose of the special sessions in Punto de Vista. They also focus on the work of the Festival's special guests, screening their films and planning complementary activities.
The concept of documentary goes well beyond film to encompass a never-ending array of other aspects. In an attempt to include these aspects of documentary, Punto de Vista has created a space for those activities and events that cannot be part of the Festival's traditional sections. This space is the one made up by special sessions.
Unique special films, panels, discussions of unexplored topics or new trends, live music, shows that blend images with words and music, master classes, tributes, workshops and seminars. A wide range of activities that Punto de Vista considers necessary to draw a full map of documentary film. The special sessions are reinvented every year, making them an ever-evolving and fresh window onto the festival, rich and provoking in their confluence of styles and proposals.
