The Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival is returning for a seventh edition this year September 25-27. The call for entries is now open and the festival will accept submissions until June 28, 2015. For the first time, this year the festival will accept films made using pixilation — a technique made popular thanks to innovative films like Norman McLaren’s Neighbors.
First presented in 2009, the Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival is the largest festival in the world dedicated to the animation technique. Last year’s event screened 70-plus films in competition and hosted a sold-out master class with Georgina Hayns on the making of LAIKA’s The Boxtrolls.
