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!

2019 Festival Coverage:

Lodz, 8-10-11/2019

After the success of the Slovenian edition of StopTrik, it's time for the Polish chapter. For the fourth time in Łódź, we invite you to the Polish edition of the StopTrik International Film Festival - the oldest in Europe (held continuously since 2011) an initiative promoting classic stop motion techniques (stop-motion) in animation.

The StopTrik 2019 competition programs will present what is aesthetically, technically and intellectually most interesting in contemporary international stop motion production. While the "International Stop Motion Competition" presents the creators' traditional approach to puppets, clay, sand animation or cutouts, the "Borderland Competition" offers viewers a selection of the most interesting experimental films in which the language of stop motion animation is only part of the means of expression used, because these films combine classic animation with digital techniques, live-action, found footage, etc.

As every year, StopTrik audience and the 3-person Student Jury will decide about the winners of the competitions. In the non-competitive sections we will see "Panorama", which is an international review of intriguing stop motion films, whose creators test innovative technical and narrative solutions; "Don’t Stop Your Emotion" is a review of women stop motion animations realized in the WJTeam / Likaon studio in Lodz; "To be a woman, or a replica of the Lublin Film Festival 2018", a program of short actor films from Hungary, Russia and Slovakia, which tell about the lives and problems of women from Central and Eastern Europe (with the introduction by Maciej Misztal, director of Lublin Film Festival).

Thanks to the cooperation with the Animakom Festival from Bilbao, we will also see Spanish experimental films under the slogan ELLAS MUEVEN - SHE MOVES Latin American Feminism in Stop Motion Animation,  as well as the comics exhibition of Ana Penyas and Ana Galvañ works. Especially for the younger (but not only!) audience, we will present feature full-length claymation animation from the Aardman Studio - Nick Park's "Early Man".

Those interested in the history of animated film and the creative paths of pioneers of stop motion animation will become familiar with the documentary film "Lotte Reiniger - Dance of the Shadows", will discovering the 50 years of animation from Azerbaijan (with the introduction by Rashid Aghamaliyev, the director of ANIMAFILM Baku International Animation Festival), and will also take part in the promotion of the collective monograph "Propaganda, Ideology, Animation. Twisted Dreams of History ”, whose authors (academics, critics and filmmakers) discuss the political inclinations of the 20th and 21st century animated films. 

As every year, filmmakers present at the Festival will take part in the so-called "TrikShow", during which they will reveal the secrets of working on their films. This year during TrikShow we will talk not only about the movies from the official selection but also about two work-in-progress (Zbigniew Kotecki will introduce A Great Worry, and Piotr Chmielewski will talk about "Crab"), Agnieszka Kowalewska (Momakin) will talk about the winning projects of Animarkt Stop Motion Forum, and Sofya Nabok about the exhibition "Art of Creating Puppets".

Full Programme

The festival focuses on "Feminism is Futurism" and "Context Matters" organizing axis:

Feminist perspective on animation filmmaking goes far beyond questions of individual style or general aesthetic criteria. Feminism is a daily practice of approaching social and political problems in a manner of strong, mutually shared affirmation of human rights, individual freedom and respect towards any marginalized group, areas particularly redefined in recent times in Central-East Europe. Reflecting upon filmmaking practice of stop motion, determined by ability to transform and move once stable matter through means of frame by frame animation, seems as a perfect field for such an exercise. On top of explorations of historical achievements and contemporary trends, we might even acknowledge new ways that may free individual expression and collective empowerment. Perhaps we are just framed within mainstream production status quo, anti-human rights backlash and populist fears, and you can use a Festival as an exit from such kind of reality - StopTrik Festival Official Programme Statement excerpt (read the complete text)
