The Vimeo Awards were held last night in New York. A celebration of the incredible work being done globally by some incredible filmmakers where the internet is their main platform of distribution.

I was lucky enough to be asked to judge the “Lyrical” category. It was very tough as there were very strong entries but one stood out amongst the others and that was Symmetry by EveryNone. I presented the award to them tonight at the Vimeo Festival and they fantastically went on to win the Grand Jury Prize. Well done guys. Incredible work.

You can see Symmetry below and the other winners of all the main categories

Other winners are Daniels for best newcomer (check their music vid below), The one day on earth team and open frameworks. Congrats to all winners, finalists and to everyone who entered. This was a terrific competition.

    Why would that “Rear WIndow” video be allowed?

    Stealing footage and remixing it is acceptable? So lame.

    It is crap like that, that gives vimeo users a bad wrap.

    1. Philip Bloom says:

      It’s called “fair use”. Totally legal. Please don’t jump to conclusions with accusations.

        I agree, it’s highly creative, innovative, technically skilled and conceptually brilliant work like that that gives
        Vimeo users a bad wrap (sic).

      You must be absolutely kidding me!!!!! Are you serious,? lol.

      I signed up to post a reply to you just because that video (which won under the Remix category btw) is one truly incredible piece of art. The amount of work and dedication that went into it. The inspiration that was needed to create it, and knowing that it was all worth it in the end.

      Here take a look at this film http://www.nfb.ca/film/rip_a_remix_manifesto/
