Oskar Alegria, new Artistic Director of the Punto de Vista film Festival
Taking over from Josetxo Cerdán, Oskar Alegria will be the Artistic Director of the Punto de Vista Festival for the next four years. The festival is maintaining its policy of having two directors, an Artistic Director, a position that is periodically renewed, and an Executive Director. Ana Herrera will once again be the Executive Director in this new period, having previously held this position between 2005 and 2010. The festival is organised and funded by the Regional Government of Navarre, through Fundación INAAC.
In February of 2014, Punto de Vista will be holding an international seminar, the dates for which will be announced soon.
8th Punto de Vista Festival draws more than 8,000 moviegoers
Now that the Festival’s 8th edition has finished, figures about moviegoers reveal that Punto de Vista, now in the festival format again after the 2012 seminar, is back in shape. This year, the Festival’s activities and events drew 8,490 people, that is, over 2,000 more than in 2011 (6,106), 3,000 more than in 2010 (5,236) and 4,000 more than in 2009 (4,353). This means that the number of attendees doubled in five years.
