Montreal Stop Motion Calls for Entries

;Cocksure Lads Opens 2015 Canadian Film Fest;
(March 26, 2015 – Montreal, QC) The 7th edition of the Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival will unspool in late September, and they’re looking for your productions now. This labour intensive way to create animation should be celebrated. Not sure what stop motion is or how popular it`s become? Go see The Boxtrolls, which is one example of stop motion filmmaking. Every frame was first an actual construction, every movement created by someone carefully moving some part of the set, or some part of the character and usually more than one element is moved in every frame.

Here are some of the details:

There are no fees associated with submitting a film. Entry is free. Submissions must be received at the festival’s office no later than June 28th, 2015 at 11:59PM EST. Films completed after the first of January 2013 are eligible to participate. Only films under 30 minutes, using Stop Motion animation and pixilation will be considered.

Technical specs and other submission requirements are available online.

The Call for Entries is now open and this year, the MSMFF will broaden its horizons by accepting film submissions with Object Animation and Pixilation. The Call for Entries will end on June 28th, 2015, at 11:59 EST.

MSMFF organizers are aiming to bring stop motion animation fans another exceptional program of films and more exceptional special guests. The festival will return on the 25th, 26th and 27th of September 2015.
