‘King of Vine’: Actor Adam Goldberg in one of his six-second masterpieces

New York’s ultra-hip film festival gets in on the app action with #6SecFilms Vine Competition

This year’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York has announced an interesting competition that will be a challenge to all filmmakers.

And that is to make a #6SecFilms on the new Vine app. There is also a Android version too, so the little competition is not restricted to iPhone owners.

Since the debut of app earlier this year influential artists and filmmakers such as Kat Dennings, Adam Goldberg and Reggie Watts have been producing mini epics that have inspired Tribeca organisers to launch a competition.

“Even though the app is still working out some bugs, this new social medium is already changing the way we share our stories within our personal networks and beyond,” says the info on the Film Festival website.

“Will Vine change the way filmmakers and artists think about visuals and storytelling efficiency?”

Here’s how it works: Vine creators can make as many Vines as they want in any of the following categories: #GENRE, #AUTEUR, #ANIMATE, or #SERIES and the Tribeca team of jurors will choose their favourites from a shortlist shared on the site.

Tribeca has already announced that members of the jury will include actor Adam Goldberg and director Penny Marshall, with more names to be added shortly.

For more details and competition rules check out the #6SecFilms Vine Competition.

Since the app’s launch Twitter users from all walks of life have created and shared their own six seconds of video content in stop motion on an endless loop. The app still suffers early teething problems but when it works – it works brilliantly and as with anything, the only limit is your own imagination.
