The Festival Stop Motion is perhaps the Premiere stop motion festival in the world. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, this year’s event will evaluate 58 films from 23 countries. Public screenings will take place throughout the festival. Major names from the world of stop-motion and puppetry — including the United Kingdom’s Tim Allen (Frankenweenie and Corpse Bride) and Amanda Strong of Vancouver — will offer seminar-sized master classes at this year’s festival. This year’s festival will be September 14-16th. Personally I think the entire Stop Motion Magic community should plan on meeting and partying there next year! Click here for more information.
