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.

Senka Domanović is film director, she works and lives in Belgrade, Serbia. Occupied Cinema is her debut feature film.

It is commonly held that we are living in times where people have lost their trust in institutions and the state. The Occupation of the cinema was a opportunity for people to come together, to self-organize and manage a contained micro economy essentially bypassing the market logic and break away from the ideological apparatus of the state. There we had a rare gathering of artists, activists, former cinema employees, standing up together against the injustice — and moment later everything collapsed. My film is an attempt to understand this transformation. In terms of style, ethics and production, this film relies on the cinéma vérité method. Occupied Cinema, as an investigative documentary, putting things in medias res. The camera doesn’t hide its presence, it invites movement members as well as the cinema goers to a dialogue.
