Vimeo Awards and Festival in NYC

UPDATE: The winner in the animaiton category last night was Malcolm Sutherland’s Umbra.

Tonight in New York City is the second annual Vimeo Awards. I was one of the judges in the animation category, and one of these four nominees in the category will receive $5,000:

Little Boat by Nelson Boles (US)

Les chiens isolés by Rémi Bastie, Nicolas Deghani, Jonathan Djob-Nkondo, Paul LaColley, Nicolas Pegon, Jérémy Pires, Kevin Manach (France)

Umbra by Malcolm Sutherland (Canada)

Cross by Fabian Grodde (Germany)

Tickets are sold out to the award ceremony, but there are still tickets left to the Vimeo Festival which takes place tomorrow and Saturday, and offers lots of interesting talks targeted toward short filmmakers. Vimeo is offering a special deal for Cartoon Brew readers. For a $40 all-access pass to the 2-day festival, go to Ticketfly and use the discount code “brew”.

    My fingers are crossed for “Little Boat” by Nelson Boles; I adore that film.

    • Agreed. It’s deceptively simple.

  • “…the Vimeo Festival which takes place tomorrow and Saturday…offers lots of interesting talks targeted toward short filmmakers.”

    I’m not a short filmmaker but rather average sized. I think I might go anyway!

    The four animated shorts chosen are very interesting but particularly like Little Boat and Umbra.

    That Lonely Dogs film sure was SUPERB (superbe)!

    Congrats to Malcolm Sutherland! Very innovative animator (understatement)!
