    G.I.JOE Stop-Motion Film Festival - May 26, 2018 Early Bird Deadline



    GI JOE FEST
    has shared word on an exciting Stop Motion Film Festival centered around the world of G.I.Joe! Check out the official press release below -

    The GI JOE STOP MOTION FILM FESTIVAL is the world's first festival dedicated to screening works by stop-motion artists who use GI Joe action figures (12 inch 3 inch sizes) as main characters or actors. The Festival combines the excitement of world premiere short-films and fan tributes with the allure of Denver's nightlife. GI JOE FEST highlights up and coming filmmakers, as well as masters of the craft and has already attracted award winning films in the past years. Independent in every sense, these films share the same willingness to challenge the conventions set for stop-motion.

    We are a distribution vehicle for truly indie animators that distrust the commercial film festival circuit. We are a celebration of what is possible in independent stop-motion animated films. We have also completed several national tours at 8 major US cities and even traveled abroad to places like Singapore, Slovakia and Canada.

    There are only TWO main rules for our Festival:

    1. Your film MUST be shot using stop-motion technique. Puppetry, wires and live action could also be used as long as it does not comprise 30% of the entire film.
    2. Your main character MUST be an official G.I. Joe action figure, created by Hasbro, Inc. or an Action Man figure, created by Palitoy. Other licensed figures are also accepted, like "Comandos em Acao" and "Falcon" (BRAZIL) or "Commandos Heroicos" (MEXICO). Other action figures, dolls and toys can be used for supporting roles.

    I'm glad it has now some media attention. I must admit I've never heard of this until I found it on Cobra Island newsfeed.

    So this is something that has been going on for a few years, if I'm correct. Wish I've known films that have been submitted in past years.

    Same, brother. I was surprised to find out that this was an ongoing event, as I would've been covering it a long time ago. Happy that it's getting the attention it deserves!
