We are beyond excited to announce our dates. Time & Science will tell, but in the meantime, we are busy planning for a new incredible program. We will be opening for NEW submissions in ONE WEEK. We are currently working towards returning to our usual venues and hope to stage all 2022 festival screenings in person. Elements of the Festival Program may also be made available online to audiences unable to attend the festival in-person. We’re looking for creative, innovative, challenging stop-motion filmmaking at short, mid-length and feature-length.
We released today through Collider.com our first trailer for the 2018/2019 season. Featuring a few classic films and a handfull of new ones, the trailer really sets the tone for what's to come. A big thanks to Dave Trumbore for the piece.
The Surveillance Port of CobraIsland.com strives to bring you the latest G.I.Joe and Toy news from around the web! There, fans can discuss their favorite GI JOE toy lines, comics and more. So it's no wonder that we got a mention on their site this week. Yo Joe!
This week we talked to Mark Otnes from the JOE REPORT about the film festival, stop-motion animation and of course: GI Joe. The Joe Report is a FREE online “blogazine” dedicated to all fans, collectors and customizers of GIjOEs and other 1:6 scale action figures. Their mission: to scour the various worldwide forums, magazines, collector’s club websites and elsewhere to gather the most recent, relevant and interesting information regarding this exciting hobby.
We will be open for submissions on January 24th 2018.
The GI JOE Stop Motion Film Festival will soon be accepting films for our 5th season. It's been a long time coming and we are very excited to bring our films back on tour. This year, we will be accepting films through FilmFreeway.
Submit your film before June 29th, 2018 for at a discounted fee. Submissions close on August 31st, 2018.
