I'm reaching out from Vimeo where we are currently working on the Vimeo Festival + Awards, which is happening in June in New York. The festival is a series of workshops, panels, conversations, screenings and parties to celebrate the dynamic and exciting work that is being created by filmmakers, and also to educate and inspire beginners to get out and make incredible films. Categories include Motion Graphics, Captured, Lyrical, Narrative and many more.
We are under a week away from closing our submissions (deadline is 20th Feb) so shouting out to ensure filmmakers are aware of the awards. All the information we've released so far is up at at www.vimeo.com/awards and you can follow our news via Twitter @Vimeo and @VimeoFestAwards.
We recently announced new judges which include James Franco, Nick Knight and Colin Greenwood (Radiohead bassist) with more to come, so it's worth keeping an eye on that too!
There's a $25,000 grand prize, and $5,000 category prizes.

But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
