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.

Sofy’s job is putting caps on bottles. The work is monotonous and seemingly endless. The pace with which the bottles come through is fast and Sofy must hurry to keep up. But this day she is interrupted when one bottle arrives with a cap already attached.

Edino delo, ki ga ima Sofy, je dajanje pokrovčkov na steklenice. Delo je monotono in na videz brez konca. Steklenice prihajajo z veliko hitrostjo in Sofy mora hiteti, da jim lahko sledi. Nekega dne pa jo zmoti steklenica, ki po tekočem traku pride z že pritrjenim pokrovčkom.
