Pamplona (Spain), 22-27 February 

What is "Punto de Vista"

The Punto de Vista Documentary Film Festival is a space for celebrating, discovering and analysing the form of cinema generically grouped under the heading of ‘documentary’.

It is held annually in Pamplona (Spain) in February, and is organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism of the Regional Government of Navarre.

In 2009 the festival will take place between the 13th and the 21rd of February.

The Festival is open to all non-fiction audiovisual forms, such as author’s documentaries, creation documentaries, experimental essays, diary films or works created using home, orphan or recycled materials.

Punto de Vista aims to be a meeting point for all documentary film makers who, in a free and experimental way, explore the cinema ability for recording time and, as Jean Vigo used to say, “open our eyes and help us to look beyond the appearances”.

Considering the nature of this cinematographic author, Punto de Vista is an invitation for all film makers who offer a wider reality perception across their glances, and across their untransferable points of view, and who understand that the first of all ethical compromises for a documentary film maker is that one related to the cinematographic form itself.
