Vimeo Festival Awards 2011
Vimeo Festival + Awards recognize the best videos online, determined not by how many people in the world had seen them, but by how they moved people and helped people see deeper into the world.
In 2010, at the inaugural Festival + Awards, online video was still an emerging medium. In 2012 video is ready to step into the spotlight.
Online video and creativity are transitioning from an age of wonder to an age of action. Video has revealed itself to be a medium of incredible power and potential, and we are on the cusp of fulfilling the promises of the first act.
With all the amazing tools for fundraising, filming, editing, and distributing that have democratized the process of video-making, the barrier to entry has fallen. This is a moment of empowerment and accessibility for all to use video to create with purpose and take action on their ideas.
