Here are the 7 winners selected from over 1,200 Staff Picks this year.
In a combination ceremony/screening held last night at the Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg, New York, Vimeo revealed their selections for their favorite staff picks of 2018. The winners were chosen from a pool of 93 nominated videos over 7 different categories: Action Sports, Animation, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Eye Candy, and Travel. You can check out the full list of nominees here.
If you’re looking for a shorts program to watch this weekend, I highly recommend checking out these films. Honestly, I wish that more festivals would program their shorts blocks in a more categorical manner, as it keeps things interesting throughout. Check out the winners and commentary from a team of jurors including Tony-winning actor & producer Alan Cumming, writer & producer of Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse Phil Lord, 7x world champion surfer Stephanie Gilmore, New York Times inaugural “52 Places” journalist Jada Yuan, and Oscar-winning director Roger Ross Williams below.
