Montreal, Thursday, August 6, 2020 – The 12th edition of Festival Stop Motion Montreal is approaching and in the name of safety and accessibility, will run as a virtual edition from September 14 to 20, 2020. In order to serve the ever-growing and faithful stop motion community, and to roll with the pandemic punches, the event will be available online to the whole international community so that all members of the public from far and wide can seize the opportunity to catch the first-ever Festival dedicated solely to the art of stop motion from the comfort of their own homes.
A larger number of films will be showcased this year to highlight the creators and their amazing work, as more than 10 hours of screening entertainment awaits, which represents more content than usually offered in theatres.
This year’s official list of short films in competition will be revealed in the coming weeks on the festival’s social media channels, along with the professional workshop details and more exciting program announcements. The Festival’s Home Sweet Home 12th Edition program will also serve up renowned special guest conference speakers, behind the scenes interviews, new original content created specially for this unique virtual edition as well as online technical skills workshops running from September 14 to 17, 2020.
Festival Stop Motion Montreal is delighted to collaborate this year and partner locally with VUCAVU, a Canadian bilingual streaming platform for independent film and video art where festival-goers will be able to access all of the 2020 activities online.
The festival team invites regulars and newcomers to join in on the celebration from the safety and comfort of their couch and catch the stop motion fever!
