Vimeo Film Festival Winners – Some Pretty Amazing Videos

Symmetry from Everynone on Vimeo.

I just returned from New York City, where I attended the Vimeo Film Festival.  If you remember my comments about the first festival, I was incredibly impressed with what the folks over there had put together  - not to mention all the wonderful films that were awarded for being just that.  This year was no different.  The Festival offered a number of incredibly educational panels and lectures from a variety of industry professionals.  If you weren’t able to make it out this year – you can see some coverage of the festival on Vimeo’s site to get a taste of what the festival was like.  However, I truly recommend going to the next one if you are able to- there is so much to learn and absorb.   It’s a heck of a party as well!

Aside from their excellent panels, Vimeo also handed out awards in 13 different categories to some amazing films.  Above you can see the Grand Prize winner, "Symmetry" by filmmaking team, Everynone, which also took home the prize for Best Film in the Lyrical category.  Click for more to watch the films from the other 12 winners.
