Founded in 2009, Festival Stop Motion Montréal is the world’s first festival dedicated to showcasing films animated exclusively using stop motion techniques. The Festival aims to foster the development of this amazing technique that creates the illusion of movement with objects or figurines that would otherwise be inanimate. In a digital revolution age, stop motion is experiencing a resurgence. The technique brings back hand made cinema, the texture of tangible materials, and the fantasy world made possible by stop motion animation.
Dedicated to showcasing short films from Edinburgh, from Scotland and from around the world, the Edinburgh Short Film Festival has pretty much seen it all – from the first film made in Somalia in 20 years, to Oscar-nominated shorts and films smuggled out of China and Iran.
