Punto de Vista 2021 Winners
To mark the launch of Number 39 of Secuencias, Magazine on the History of Film, in which the publication focuses exclusively on film festivals, Punto de Vista will host a round table that will look into the purpose of these events on Thursday 12th February at 8pm in the Baluarte Bulevar Hall. Moderated by professor at the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU and coordinator of the number, Aida Vallejo, the round table approaches the less well known aspects of festivals, where the selection methods, functioning and challenges faced as a result of the changes in the way of watching films that the cinematographic sector has undergone in recent years will be discussed. Elena Fortes (director of the Ambulante Documentary Film Festival, Mexico) and Nourddine Ben Driss (director of the documentary section at the Tetouan International Mediterranean Film Festival, Morrocco) will participate in the meeting. With this number, Secuencias raises a pioneering proposal in the Spanish speaking framework, with articles that study the economic, political and social role of international festivals, such as Venice, Cannes or San Sebastian; as well as other parallel circuits devoted to documentaries, short films or classic cinema.
