Jiří Barta (born 26 November 1948) is a Czech stop-motion animation director. His films, many of which used the medium of wood for animation, garnered critical acclaim and won many awards, but after the fall of the communist government in Czechoslovakia he was unable to release anything for about 15 years (a situation similar to that faced by Russian animator Yuriy Norshteyn). Throughout the 1990s he tried to find funding for a feature film called The Golem, but ultimately only managed to complete a short pilot in 1996 (which can be viewed online). In 2006 he released his first computer-animated short film, and on March 5, 2009 he released a new puppet-animated feature film which was geared more towards a children's audience.
