We show that for some large classes of topological spaces $X$ and any metric space $(Z,d)$, the point of continuity property of any function $f: X\to (Z,d)$ is equivalent to the following condition:

$(*)$ For every $\varepsilon>0$, there is a neighbourhood assignment $(V_x)_{x\in X}$ of $X$ such that $d(f(x),f(y))<\varepsilon$ whenever $(x,y)\in V_y\times V_x$.

We also give various descriptions of the filters $\mathcal F$ on the integers $\mathbb N$ for which ($*$) is satisfied by the $\mathcal F$-limit of any sequence of continuous functions from a topological space into a metric space.
