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.

This experimental animation approaches Hong Kong’s built environment from the conceptual perspective of celluloid film. The city’s signature architecture of horizon-eclipsing housing estates is reimagined as parallel rows of film strips: Serial Parallels

Ta eksperimentalna animacija se zgrajenemu okolju Hong Konga približa s konceptualne perspektive celuloidnega filma. Značilna arhitektura mesta, stanovanjska naselja, ki segajo čez obzorje, je na novo zamišljena kot vzporedne vrste filmskih trakov: serijske paralele.
