Vimeo, the better dressed and hence cooler cousin of video sharing, is a perfect organizer to bring online video into a sexy festival of short film. There will be screenings at 3 locations (IAC and Vimeo office building is one of them, that’s the boat sail building designed by Frank Ghery on the West Side Highway), as well as lectures on producing film in the digital age, artists like DJ Spooky will talk about their work, respected people will teach audiences how to upload their videos (kidding that part is really really easy) and of course much more.

We’re pleased to give away two tickets  to the festival taking place at venues around NYC on October 8&9th. I assume, after watching red  carpets, that people who go to film festivals would like bring someone with them so the tickets will go to one winner.
