Selected by Movie Insider as America’s “most original film festival,” the GI Joe Stop Motion Film Festival was created in 2005 by Gio Toninelo to celebrate the dying art form of stop-motion while paying tribute to America's favorite movable fighting man: the GI JOE Action Figure (or Action Man in UK). The Film Festival hosts screenings, competitions and workshops to showcase the best work within the genre. GI JOE FEST kicks off in Denver before traveling to cities around the world.
The GI JOE Stop Motion Film Festival has opened submissions for its 5th year.
The Festival welcomes submissions of feature-length and short films, in both the narrative and documentary categories, experimental films and pretty much any film containing a GI JOE action figure.
