Point It is a term with different meanings: the circular sign of small dimensions, the spelling note that is written on the i and j, the sign which marks the end of a sentence, the unit of score in a game or the measure of qualification of a thing that can be judged through a scale, among others. In this case, we are interested in the definition of point as site or place (“The square will be the starting point of the race”).
The view , on the other hand, refers to the view as the ability to interpret the environment through the image captured by the eye. What is in sight is what you can see. For example: “Land the view! We will arrive in just over an hour ”, "The actor lost his sight in a terrible accident when he was three years old".
The idea of point of view refers to the place from which a person Look at a situation. Both the place and the fact of observing can be concrete or symbolic.
If a person is standing in front of the door of his house and affirms "From my point of view, what comes flying at full speed is a hawk", the expression will be based on something physical. The point of view of the subject depends on his body location, as does the perception (the bird that approaches flying).
Given that meaning, we can say that point of view is a term widely used when referring to the talk that two or more people have on a specific topic. In this way, in each one of the participants what they will do will be to offer, regardless of the redundancy, their point of view, their opinion, about it.
Hence, if in a talk a subject comments “I respect your opinion, but my point of view is different since I would never distrust Clara”, the notion of point of view is related to the subjectivity and at thought . The point of view, in this case, is a personal opinion that has nothing to do with a physical situation.
In addition to all of the above, we should also add that there is an important global event that uses the term we are analyzing as a title. We are referring specifically to the Punto de Vista Festival, also called the International Documentary Film Festival of Navarra.
In 2005, this event began, which takes place in the capital, in Pamplona, and whose clear objective is to bet strongly on the so-called documentary genre, which, in most cases, does not find the support or promotion necessary to reach the general public.
Conferences, meetings and projections make up the programming of the festival in which awards are given to the best director, the best short film, the special audience prize or several special mentions.
François Bovy, Peter Kerekes, Tomasz Wolski, Tatsuya Yamamoto or Clio Barnard are some of the filmmakers who have seen their work recognized in this event in which tribute has been paid to important figures of this art such as Frenchman Jean Vigo, known for films such as "L'Atalante" (1934) or "Zero in conduct" (1933).
