PROUTOPIA 2019

INTERNATIONAL

STOP MOTION FILM FESTIVAL

 

CALL FOR ARTISTS

 

Greetings stop-motion film makers!
You are invited to apply for entry into the

2019 Proutopia International Stop Motion Film Festival.

 

Proutopia is a festival art market located in Manitoba, Canada. Two weekends each year, artists and art lovers come together to sell, celebrate and create art. Part of our featured programming takes place in our on-site gallery, and this year we are highlighting stop motion film making.

 

Stop motion is an animation technique that brings static objects to life frame by frame. For beginners, use your phone or tablet with this free app.

 

Films will be selected based on originality by our Creative Director Kit Muir. The final compilation will be shown twice daily during the festival weekends, June 9 & 10, 2019 and August 31 & September 1, 2019.

 

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: AUGUST 19, 2019
