Montreal – The fourth edition of the Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival will take place on October 19, 20, and 21, 2012, at Concordia University’s J.A. de Sève Theater (1453 Mackay Street, Montreal).
The 2012 edition will feature some 70 films in official competition along with three special guest speakers from the industry: Mark Shapiro from LAIKA, who will reveal some of the secrets behind the film ParaNorman, Chris Walsh from Mad Lab Productions, and Merlin Crossingham, creative director for Wallace & Gromit at Aardman Animations.
The Stop Motion Film Festival is open to artists and film enthusiasts alike. We will be presenting two free family screenings alongside “hands on” sections where young animators can get better acquainted with the technique of stop motion animation.
Until then, we invite you to view our latest demo reel and see the exceptional quality of the films screened during the festival.
The full program of this 4th edition will be unveiled on October 2nd!
The Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival is an initiative of Erik H. Goulet, director of the festival and teacher in the animation department at Concordia University since 2001.
