CALL FOR ENTRIES TO INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS ON 9. STOPTRIK INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL IN SLOVENIA AND POLAND!
StopTrik IFF is a festival and community that celebrates amazing film art of stop motion animation. We appreciate the works made in traditional techniques of three-dimensional hand-made animation but we are also excited to discover experimental, mixed and hybrid forms. Whether you are a professional, student or an enthusiast you are more than welcome to share your films with our Audience – the best and most valuable juror that decides about the festival's Grand Prix. 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!
