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 trippy animated journey through hundreds of catalogues, printed by the Israel Museum over the last 50 years. Materials were scanned, cut, filed, torn and read. The authors were reorganizing the catalogues over and over. 


Nabliskano potovanje skozi stotine katalogov, ki jih je v preteklih 50 letih natisnil Izraelski muzej. Gradivo je bilo poskenirano, izrezano, arhivirano, raztrgano in prebrano. Avtorji so kataloge znova in znova preuredili.
