Proutopia International Stop Motion Film Festival 2019 Entry Form
Greetings stop-motion film makers! You are invited to apply for entry into the 2019 Proutopia International Stop Motion Film Festival.

Proutopia is a festival art market located in Manitoba, Canada. Two weekends each year, artists and art lovers come together to sell, celebrate and create art. Part of our featured programming takes place in our on-site gallery, and this year we are highlighting stop motion film making.

Stop motion is an animation technique that brings static objects to life frame by frame.

Films will be selected based on originality by our Creative Director Kit Muir. The final compilation will be shown twice daily during the festival weekends, June 9 & 10, 2019 and August 31 & September 1, 2019.

There are two submission deadlines, any film entered for the first Proutopia festival showing (submissions due June 1, 2019) will be carried over to the second viewing date (submissions due August 19, 2019). So no need to submit your films twice. And if you are unable to submit for the first viewing date, you can choose to only submit for the second viewing.

Prizes and Awards:

GFF EARLY BIRD ENTRANCE PRIZE: One winner will be selected by Proutopia and the Gimli Film Festival (GFF) to be shown at the GFF in July 2019. To qualify for this prize, your film must be submitted by June 1, 2019.

GRAND PRIZE: $200 cash judged and awarded by Proutopia

VIEWERS' CHOICE AWARD: $200 toward online courses with Sketchbook Skool ( judged by viewers at the festival

KARA KRAMER STOP MOTION AWARD: $165 gift certificate toward a class with Carla Sonheim Presents ( judged by New York artist Kara Kramer
