The Vimeo Festival was two days of riveting conversations, inspiring workshops, scintillating screenings, and one truly outstanding closing party. We opened up dialogues, lobbed provocative questions, and gave creators a forum in which to discuss stuff they care about. People of all skill levels participated in educational workshops with the industry’s leading creators. We projected our favorite submissions and unveiled some exclusive premieres.
Eliot Rausch, Gabriel Bisset-Smith, Chris Beckman, Kasumi, Andy Bruntel, Onur Senturk, and Ted Tremper won big at the first Vimeo Festival + Awards. They were then asked to be judges at the second awards show. The following videos are their stories.
