ASFF Official Selection: Stop Motion Animation Gnosis by Tamara Hahn

Tamara Hahn’s short stop motion animation screened at ASFF in 2014. The five minute film is a vivid, yet eerie story about a baby stuck in an infinite loop of danger due to baby-robbing monsters. These odd and quirky characters may continuously fail in their mischievous attempts, but they are still within close reach – with no way to escape. Hahn attended the film festival as a guest speaker at the Meet the Filmmakers event and offered an exclusive insight into the elaborate processes involved in the making of Gnosis.

ASFF is a celebration of independent film from across the world, and an outlet for supporting and championing short filmmaking. The festival’s fifth edition will take place in 15 iconic venues across the city of York from 5-8 November and is currently open for entries. Submit your film for a chance to showcase your film to industry, filmmakers and thousands of film fans at ASFF 2015. We accept running times up to 30 minutes and the deadline for entry is 31 May.
