Film screenings, talks, performances, meetings with film-makers and sessions for children to take place in Pamplona from 27th to 1st April.
Punto de Vista, to be held in Pamplona from 27th March to 1st April, has now placed on sale tickets for all sessions at the festival on its website, www.puntodevistafestival.com. Standard tickets will cost 3 euros per session, except for some that will be free.
For a week, Punto de Vista will be at the epicentre of the international audiovisual community, with several venues: Baluarte, Cines Golem, Museo Oteiza, Plamplona planetarium, Filmoteca de Navarra, Civivox Condestable and Civican. Film screenings, meetings with film-makers, performances, documentary film sessions for children and the Official Section will be taking place at the festival's different venues.
The Punto de Vista programme is to be organised in seven main sections: the Official Selection, to include the 18 films from 13 countries selected to compete from among nearly 800 entries; and the retrospectives Se acercan otros tiempos | Es nahen andere Zeiten. El cine de Peter Nestler, about this German film-maker and his work, and Lejos de los árboles [Far From the Trees], about the production of essential goods; Focos, monographic sessions where Punto de Vista focuses on some of the most important film-makers on the international scene (this year Fukuda Katsuhiko, Ana Poliak and Pascale Bodet); the Mediation Programme, which continues to open up the festival to new audiences; Lan (Basque for "work"), which features a series of public activities about creative and production processes; Contactos, placing film in contact with other forms of art and thought; and the X Films project, which invites new film-makers to submit a proposal to shoot a film to be premièred at next year's festival.
Moreover, the festival again sets out to be family-friendly, with the Red Balloon Punto de Vista play scheme. This offers a place to feed infants and for children between six months and twelve years old, open to both festival pass holders and the general public on 30th and 31st March and 1st April. Places can be booked now on the website.
