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.

A Love Letter to the One I Made Up/ Ljubezensko pismo za izmišljeno osebo/ Michtav ahava le’bahur she’hemtzeti/ מכתב אהבה לבחור שהמצאתי 

Rachel Gutgarts (Bezalel Academy)

2017, ISR, 6'05'' 

A lonely walk home is intertwined with an underwater fantasy world. The combination between reality and fantasy is portrayed in a love letter addressed to an imaginary "perfect" man. The film is made with a unique technique of screen-printed animation.

Samoten sprehod na poti domov se prepleta s podvodnim fantazijskim svetom. Spajanje resničnosti in fantazije je prikazano v ljubezenskem pismu, naslovljenem na izmišljenega ''popolnega moškega''. Film je narejen z  edinstveno tehniko animacije sitotiska.
