StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

8th StopTrik International Film Festival

 

Selection results for:

  • International Stop Motion Competition

  • The Borderlands Competition

  • Panorama (non-competitive section)

stoptrikfestival@gmail.com

We’re grateful for all the submissions that came to us from each corner of the world. Our Programme Director regrets excluding a lot of valuable films in the selection process, nevertheless we’re all excited to share with you the titles that will be presented throughout October and November in Maribor and Lodz in the frames of StopTrik competition and panorama programmes. 51 selected films trigger off admiration, reflection, sadness, shock and laughter, but never indifference or boredom. The cinema is about thrills, shivers, hopes and emotions. Animation adds up to this a radiant joy of experiencing intimate visions materializing in clay, puppets, objects, threads or coffee grains, or any other movable substance. It’s smaller than reality, but bigger than life!
