We are a festival dedicated exclusively to the technique of Time Lapse and Stop Motion. We started in 2012 and we are already a Festival of reference. The festival is organized by SOCUMO (Sociedad Cultural Molinesa), a non-profit cultural association which, by means of activities like this festival, promotes creativity, culture and, at the same time, makes our region better-known. This Festival started out by screening the work of one of our members, together with other friends who shared the same interest in timelapse. It turned out to be such a success that in the 2nd edition we decided to make it a competition. We received entries from all the world. Every year we try to improve this festival from the experienced gathered. Our best ambassadors are those attendees from previous editions, as they can vouch for the experience. We want to make a national and international reference festival of Time Lapse and Stop Motion, and make known our city, Molina de Aragón (Guadalajara, Spain) We hope to see you!

    Great Festival in a very interesting location. It had the best public attendance at a Film Festival I've seen so far with people queuing around the block to get in. It is one of very few exclusively timelapse film festivals and attracts the works of the best timelapse artists from around the world.
