Czech Stop-Motion Day

Animayo and Czech Centres join forces to organise Special Stop Motion Animation Edition. The programme of this Special Stop Motion Animation Edition counts with 7 international guests and will include master classes, and panel discussion led by some of the leading representatives of this technique, presentation by the director of the film Daughter which was nominated for the Oscar Award 2020 as well as projections of classic and contemporary stop motion films featuring some of the best works from the prestigious FAMU school.


Special guests at the event will include Tereza Brdečková (Czech Republic), journalist, film critic, novelist and screenwriter; Martin Vandas (Czech Republic), producer of stop motion cinema; Daphne Rosenthal (Netherlands), visual artist and experimental filmmaker; Luca Raffaelli (Italy); screenwriter and specialist in comics and animation; Patricia Ortiz Martínez (Spain), art and animation director; Tami Berenstein (Israel), international animation and documentary director, concept artist, animator and illustrator; and Daria Kashcheeva (Czech Republic), animation director.

The Czech Republic is, without a shadow of doubt, one of the European countries where the production of stop motion films has most flourished. Czech animation cinema began to thrive after the end of the Second World War, becoming a great way to subtly express feelings and ideas through art. Famous across the world and always heavily featured at international festivals, Czech animation film is in a very good state of health, with a prolific production of artistic short films.


This year’s stop motion festival will be featured by Czech Centre Brussels, Czech Centre Madrid, Czech Centre Paris, Tsjechisch Centrum Nederland, Τσεχικό Κέντρο Αθήνα / Czech Centre Athens, Czech Centre Tel Aviv, Czech Centre Rome, Český dům Moskva / Czech House Moscow, as well as the Embassies of the Czech Republic in Colombia, Spain and Italy, the CzechTourism, and the school FAMU International Prague, la Národní filmový archiv, MAUR film and Congo Films School.
