The premiere of Stones will take place at ArtfilmFest (www.artfilmfest.sk) in Trencianske Teplice in June. Stones is an animated musical about ten men who work in a quarry.

    The film budget is €258 634 . Katarina Kerekesova has also established a small production company Od plotny. "Between 2003 and 2009 the Slovak Ministry of Culture granted us a total of €138,000," said Kerekesova. She has also submitted an
    application to the new Audiovisual Fond (www.avf.sk), for co-financing the film's distribution in the amount of €11,000 .

    "The coproducer of Stones is the post-production studio atelier bod.ka s.r.o., that contributed €36,000 toward post-production work. We also cooperated with the Universität fur Musik und darstellende Kunst, Institut fur Elektroakustik, Filmton, with whom we recorded the music and worked on the sound," so Kerekesova.
