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.

The Ditch, / Jarek / Areka

Euxebi’s father was killed during the war. In her youth, Euxebi suffered Francoist repression and, to this day, despite the fact that the dictatorship ended long ago, she has not had the chance to recover the memory of her father. After many years, when they finally open the grave where her father is, Euxebi puts a picture next to his bones.

Euxebijin oče je umrl v vojni. V mladosti je bila Euxebi žrtev Francove represije in kljub temu, da se je diktatura končala že zdavnaj, vse do danes še ni imela priložnosti, da počasti spomin na očeta. Ko po mnogih letih končno odprejo njegov grob, Euxebi na kup očetovih kosti položi sliko.

Areka is the result of the creative collaboration of twenty young artists. The mould of traditional Basque culture (Bersolarismo) comes together with visual experimentation, being inspired by a bertso created by Andoni Egaña specifically for this project. All of the creators worked collaboratively, sharing both work techniques and practices and experiences, thus enabling mutual learning. For this reason, the film is visually very consistent.
