Festival Stop Motion Montreal celebrates and encourages the efforts of the talented people working in this unique art form of stop motion animation.

Stop Motion animation is created by artists moving puppets in tiny increments while recording one image at a time. Each short sequence on film can represent hours of painstaking attention to detail. Is it time consuming? Definitely! But, the results can be mesmerizing and possess near universal appeal.

From the charm of Gumby, to the wild adventures of Wallace and Gromit, through to the zaniness of Jack Skellington in The Nightmare before Christmas*, we have fallen under the magical spell of characters brought to life by stop-motion animation.

With its use in television and feature films, stop-motion animation has experienced a resurgence. Despite this, getting their work screened can still be a huge struggle for many artists. Festival Stop Motion Montreal is working to change that.
