Stop Trik IFF, Niepolemice, Poland: Programme
The Slovenian-Polish alternative StopTrik IFF takes place in three different cities – inspiring Maribor, picturesque Niepołomice near Kraków and unique Bielsko-Biała located in Polish/Czech/Slovakian borderland region.
From over 160 submissions made after January 1st 2012, StopTrik's programme director chose 39 films participating in "International Stop Motion Competition" and 7 more for "The Borderlands" Competition from Europe, both Americas and Asia.
The red carpet-free festival insists on artistic integrity and grassroots participation, and consciously avoids mainstream animation.
Two different competition programmes aim to present the widest variety of stop motion - the first one displays traditional perception of the medium, while the latter exhibits works that exploit stop motion means of expression, combine them with other techniques and transgress frame by frame illusion.
