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.

We show the Competition and Panorama programmes in Slovenia and Poland, and whenever possible we support the authors' participation in the Festival. Once you're on StopTrik please get ready for marathon-watching of the most brilliant recent and historical stop motion films, several discussions about art, craft, life, politics and whatever you wish to talk about, workshops of stop motion filmmaking, morning urban walks, afternoon vegan lunches, late night dances, and 24/7 stop motion passion!
