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 bat and a family of woodpeckers live in the same tree. Their different ways of life are a cause of friction. The bat’s napping is disturbed by the woodpecker’s drumming and the chicks crying for breakfast. At night, the roles are reversed, when the bat stays up and the woodpeckers sleep. But life is full of positive surprises as well.


Netopir in žolnina družina bivajo na istem drevesu. Njihov različen življenjski stil je vzrok medsebojnih trenj. Žolnino bobnenje in klic njenih mladičkov kali netopirjev spanec. Ponoči, ko se netopir prebudi in žolne zaspijo, se vloge zamenjajo. Toda življenje je polno pozitivnih presenečenj.
