Vimeo 2012 Festival shifts emphasis from watching to creating video

Vimeo 2012 Festival + Awards, video, NYC, film-making

Video-sharing site Vimeo is gearing up for its prestigious 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards by making this year’s event as accessible as possible and also inspiring film-makers at all levels to make, create and get their work into the public domain.

The theme of the 2012 Vimeo Festival is The End of the Beginning, a rather cryptic title, but one that is meant to signify an age of transition in online video; from a state of merely watching to one of creating.

“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, and so the Festival + Awards focus this year will be on making instead of talking. This is a moment of empowerment and accessibility for all, and we want to inspire people to create with purpose and take action on their ideas,” reads a statement on the Vimeo website.

The 2012 Festival + Awards will be held in New York City 7–9  June with tickets going on sale 17 April.

Voting also opens on 17 April, with Vimeo posting shortlisted entries on its site so the public can also cast a vote.

There are 13 categories this year and at this stage we are not sure if any shortlisted videos have been made on smartphones, but we’ll keep you posted.

The Vimeo awards were last held in 2010, and were a huge success, not least for those film-makers that came away winners.

Check out the Vimeo blog for more details.
