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.

Tulipomania

Described as “inventive” and “gorgeous,” animated music videos created by Tulipomania have won awards and have been featured in film festivals worldwide. Tulipomania creates meticulous, mesmerizing videos that augment the group’s musical artistry, involving painstaking frame-by-frame stop-motion animation techniques. Their music videos created have been featured in film festivals throughout the world including: Animation Block Party (Brooklyn, USA), the London Short Film Festival (England), Leeds International Film Festival (England), Aesthetica Short Film Festival (York, England), Encounters (Bristol, England), Zubroffka (Poland), and StopTrik (Slovenia, Poland). As a musical group, Tulipomania, whose name was inspired by the 1637 Dutch tulip market collapse has been categorized as ‘cult synth punks’, ‘glam-leaning’, ‘postpunk’, ‘art rock’, and ‘muscular chamber pop’. Band members Cheryl Gelover and Tom Murray first met in art school, and found themselves collaborating on projects for their Experimental Film and Animation classes. In November, 2018 the duo contributed over an hour of collage and mixed media animation in support of Pixies 30th anniversary performances of the band’s first releases Come on Pilgrim/Surfer Rosa, working in collaboration with the acclaimed graphic artist Vaughan

Oliver; the animations were projected over seven screens, synced to the live performances in London, Mexico City and Brooklyn. Tulipomania have released four albums and numerous animated music videos and singles. They are currently at work on a fifth album and supporting animated music videos.

Animirani glasbeni videospoti, ki so jih ustvarili Tulipomania, so prejeli nagrade in bili predstavljeni na filmskih festivalih po vsem svetu ter opisani kot ''inovativni'' in ''prekrasni''. Tulipomania ustvarjajo izjemno natančne in fascinantne videospote, ki povečujejo glasbeno umetnost skupine, njihova izdelava pa zahteva skrbno stop animacijo sličice za sličico. Njihovi glasbeni videi so bili predvajani na festivalih po celem sveti, med njimi na: Animation Block Party (Brooklyn, ZDA), London Short Film Festival (Anglija), Leeds International Film Festival (Anglija), Aesthetica Short Film Festival (York, Anglija), Encounters (Bristol, Anglija), Zubroffka (Poljska) in StopTrik (Slovenija, Poljska). Ime glasbene skupine je navdihnil propad nizozemskega trga tulipanov leta 1637, njihovo glasbo pa označujejo kot  ‘cult synth punks’, ‘glam-leaning’, ‘postpunk’, ‘art rock’, in ‘muscular chamber pop’. Člana skupine, Cheryl Gelover in Tom Murray, sta se spoznala na umetniški šoli in kmalu pričela sodelovati pri šolskih projektih pri predmetih eksperimentalnega filma in animacije. Novembra 2018 je duo prispeval več kot uro dolg kolaž in animacijo v mešani tehniki ob nastopih ob 30. obletnici izida albuma ' Come on Pilgrim/Surfer Rosa’ glasbene skupine Pixies, ki sta ga ustvarila v sodelovanju s priznanim grafičnim umetnikom Vaughanom Oliverjem. Animacije so bile predvajane na sedmih zaslonih in sinhronizirane z nastopi v živo v Londonu, Mexico Cityu in Brooklynu. Skupina Tulipomania je izdala štiri glasbene albume in številne animirane glasbene videospote in single. Trenutno pripravljajo peti album in neumorno podpirajo animirane glasbene videospote.
