Maribor, Upravna enota Maribor, 2000

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.

Quirino Cristiani - The Mystery of the First Animated Movies

Gabriele Zucchelli (The Caravel Animation)

2007, ITA, 88'


This documentary was sparked off by the discovery of a never before seen interview with Cristiani, filmed in Italy, when he visited the land of his birth after living in Argentina for 81 years. Following the footprints of his life, this documentary chronicles the remarkable achievement of an animation master. It is the only thoroughly researched film to chart the life and work of Cristiani. Itʼs overdue and restores Cristiani to his rightful place as a major innovator in the development and art of animation. Among the contributors to this film one will find: Giannalberto Bendazzi (animation studies doyen), Guillermo Fernandez Jurado (founder of Cinemateca Argentina), Cesar Da Col (renowned illustrator and comic artist), historians, filmmakers as well as Cristiani's friends and members of family.
