The festival is to become a family-friendly event by setting up for several days a space for children between six months and twelve years old, available to both accredited people and the general public.
The forthcoming Punto de Vista festival is to be a family-friendly event thanks to the creation of the Punto de Vista Daycare: The Red Balloon. This means the festival will have a place for children between six months and twelve years old, open to both accredited atendees and the general public on 17th, 18th and 19th March. This initiative, set up jointly with CIMA, the association of women film-makers and audiovisual media), ICAA and the Parenting at Film Festivals group, will be run by Ludoteka Zorionak Kids & Party.
Part of the Red Balloon Alliance, Punto de Vista Daycare: The Red Balloon is an activity aligned with Puxika Gorria, Le Ballon Rouge and Berlinale Kindergarten, the crèches already set up at previous editions of the San Sebastián, Cannes and Berlin festivals.
However, in a pioneering move, Punto de Vista has opted to open its crèche to the general public as well as the professionals attending the festival, in order to become more family-friendly for all its audiences.
Punto de Vista, the international documentary film festival of Navarra, is backed by the government of Navarra and organised by the public company NICDO.
