    I attended Stoptrik in 2013 with a short film, in the Niepolomice location in Poland. This festival is run by a very dedicated small team, and they repeat the festival in Maribor, Slovenia, and I hear they have just started a third Polish location which will become the main of the two Polish locations. I really admire the work and enthusiasm the organizers put into this festival and think it’s really interesting that they are bringing it to these lesser know cities, introducing more people to stop-motion animation.

    So my experience at the Niepolomice location may not be typical, because of these recent changes. The Niepolomice festival was quite small, just one well-loved small theatre with a bar attached. The screenings had pretty good attendance, but I was only one of two filmmakers from outside Poland who had made the trip. There was a mix up with the b&b I was supposed to be staying in, but in the end I got a hotel for my whole trip, which was very nice. The organizers were really fun to hang out with, even though there weren’t a lot of other filmmakers there. And the small town is near Krakow which made a for a few nice day trips.

    So all in all, a nice experience, but I expect that the Maribor and new Polish location will be more active.
