Sticky Frames?! What’s that?
Images that stick to one another, that diverge and converge. Images that stick to your memory like a piece of gum to your shoe.
But “sticky” means more than that. Stickiness can be tough and relentless, persevering and enduring. These adjectives describe the young animation artists of this collective. Blood, sweat, and tears—this is the glue that binds them together.
The Sticky Frames artists came to Kassel, the center of the German armaments industry, not to build tanks, but to give birth to ideas. The only thing they blow up is your mind. So far none of them has received the prize named after the inventor of another explosive, dynamite, but the list of their awards and festival invitations is long.
To animate signifies “to bring life to.” Sticky Frames animates not only the materials with which they work (clay, paper, etc.), but also their audience. They throw new light and new colors on things that might seem trivial at first glance—the life of garbage collectors or horses.
Wherever the Sticky Frames tour of short films stops, something starts moving, something gets off the ground. But the movement of their audiences is an interior one. They are glued to their chairs.

Sticky Frames conquer the the german capital
On April 13th Sticky Frames and Friends were invited to show their programme at Flimmerzimmer / Hermann Schulz Bar in the hippest part of the big city Berlin - Friedrichshain.
This was such a pleasure! We had a very special curated screening these time, with very new and wonderful friends. Besides our core programme of Stickies, we had a joy to screen the newest work of Daniel von Bothmer - a very unusual and promising final year art student, artist and writer from Kassel, Matt Abbiss - our international guest from London and a well known director in the field of abstract animation - and Anne Breymann, whose work was shown for the very first time to the public audience.
Andre and Andre, our Flimmerzimmer hosts, were really welcoming and warm hearted. Their questions, which we discussed after every film as almost all of Sticky Frames were present, were tricky and smart. The audience had a lot of questions too. The event ended at midnight, but the venue was packed until the very end! What a blast!
Thank you very much Flimmerzimmer, thanks to the lovely audience - we loved being there with you! And are planning to come back next year ;-)

Since 2010 this cinema presents curated feature films and short film programmes at the Filmhaus. We started our evening due to our tradition with fries at a diner next to the theatre.
At 8 p.m. we opened the doors for the audience and started the programme at 8:30 p.m., - nearly all seats were taken. The program consisted of new films as „Coma - the sea“, a musicvideo by Florian Maubach and Nils Knoblich and „Leerstelle“ by Urte Zintler. Christiane Gernsheimer, who lives and works in Bielefeld, presented „Dying in the Garden“, a cut-out animation conducted to a piece of pop music. And also Lina Walde, the newest Sticky Frames member, showed her graduation film „Anyu“ at her hometown.
An inspiring discussion about animated films and their relevance and visibility opened up after the screening - which reassured us to continue our tour! Thanks for having us, it was a great evening!

Walt Disney Award @ OIAF 2016
Sticky Frames & Friends on Tour @ Salon Irkutsk
...and the Walt Disney Animation Award for Best Graduation Animation @ Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF) goes to: Evgenia Gostrer and her short "Frankfurterstr. 99a"
„Subtle but very beautiful. Surprising narrative and emotional impact was achieved by minimalist technique … a touching story about everyday life of a member of society that is often invisible.“
You can watch the trailer for „Frankfurter Str.99a“ here:
On August 1st Sticky Frames started their tour. Our first tour stop was Munich, the green Bavarian capital. Our friends from Salon Irkutsk offered us a beautiful cosy location, which was packed by the beginning of the screening. Despite of the warm summer evening over 60 visitors could find a place in the russian-bavarian bar and stayed after the show for more drinks and discussions with the film makers. It was a great pleasure and a wonderful opportunity - thank you Salon Irkutsk, we will come back with a new program of animated short films!
