StopTrik Festival – Oct 25-28

Posted on at

Last weekend I attended the StopTrik International Film Festival in Niepolomice, outside Krakow. It was a small festival, but with a good selection of animated shorts, and a dedicated team. My short The Whale Story played in the International Competition section, and that screening was very well attended. Here are some of the shorts I saw that I found particularly inspiring:

Lay Bare by British Paul Bush

The Back Room, by Austrian duo Mirjam Baker and Michael Kren

Blok or Flip Flat by Polish Paulina Ziolkowska

Poisson Vert by Rogier Can Der Zwaag

Last but certainly not least this Hungarian short by Peter Vacz is called Rabbit and Deer.
