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.

Standing still in front of the open window, a woman stares at the dark clouds that obscure the sky. Immobile, she fights against the remembrances of the past. In the clouds, a passionate embrace appears.

Ženska negibno stoji pred odprtim oknom in strmi v temne oblake, ki zakrivajo nebo. Nepremično se bori s spomini iz preteklosti. Naenkrat pa se v oblakih naslika strasten objem.

Justine Vuylsteker

Graduated from an animated cinema degree, Justine Vuylsteker explores since her graduation film, the close relationship between materials and sensations. From paper to sand, she discovered in 2015 the technique of the pin screen with which she directed in 2018, her first professional film: “Embraced”. Co-produced by OFFSHORE and the NFB, this film continues the research begun by “Fish do not need sex” on the representation of the Body, bodies, and their silent dialogues.

Diplomantka animiranega filma, ki od svojega diplomskega filma raziskuje tesno povezanost med materiali in občutki. Leta 2015 je odkrila pinscreen tehniko, s katero je leta 2018 posnela svoj prvi profesionalni film Embraced / Objeta. Film, nastal v koprodukciji OFFSHORE in NFB, nadaljuje raziskovanje reprezentacije telesa, teles in njihovih tihih dialogov, ki ga je začela s “Fish do not need sex”.
