2012 VIMEO FESTIVAL + AWARDS PROGRAM GATHERS THE GREATS TO EXPLORE WHAT'S NEXT FOR CREATIVE VIDEO Tickets Now Available; Awards Voting Open To The Public; Complete List of Judges Released, Including Peter Greenaway, Mike Figgis, Casey Neistat And Alana Blanchard   Vimeo®, an operating business of IAC [NASDAQ: IACI], today announced its program for the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards, featuring conversations with industry leaders; educational workshops for beginners, enthusiasts, and professionals; and a wide range of video screenings. Vimeo also released the complete list of Awards judges and opened up shortlist voting to the public.   “There has never been a better time to be creator,” said Jeremy Boxer, Director of the Vimeo Festival + Awards. “The Internet has created a leveled playing field, so that now everyone can fundraise, shoot, edit, and distribute their projects. What's next for online video? Well, that's what we will be exploring at this year's festival with the help of our awesome speakers. We have designed the festival to have something for everyone from any level of experience. Now that the barrier to entry has come crashing down perhaps we can find new creators with ideas yet to be seen and encourage so many others to start using their imagination so they too can start to create."   The Vimeo Festival + Awards will take place on June 7-9, 2012, in New York City at the Vimeo HQ and surrounding area. Film and video luminaries such as Mike Figgis, Ted Hope, Kyle Cooper, and Lucy Walker, will gather to address critical themes such as storytelling, creativity, building an audience and fundraising. Vimeo will host screenings of the winning videos and premiere work including Limbo, a new film by 2010 Grand Prize Winner Eliot Rausch, made using grant money from his award.    Festival highlights include: Keynote Address: The End of the Beginning with Dr. Reginald Watts Failure FTW (For The Win) The Story Is Everything Director Profiles Building Your Audience The Art of Getting Paid The Future of Creative Careers; and many more.   Attendees can participate in a variety of workshops that cater to all ability levels — including: ·         Animation Creation Station, Audience Participation with Andy Bruntel, Sean Pecknold and Kirsten Lepore; ·         Beginning for Beginners with Vimeo’s Dan Hayek; ·         Digi Bootcamp – Featuring The Sloth Invasion! with Lucy Cooke and Shooting People's Ingrid Kopp; ·         Impossible Things On A Shoestring with Josh Ruben and Vincent Peone; ·         Proactive Storytelling Instead Of Reactive Coverage with Stillmotion;  ·         The Right Camera for the Right Job with Philip Bloom; ·         Sound: The Other Half Of Your Video with Michael Coleman; ·         The Self-Expression Tsunami with Casey Neistat; ·         Vimeo Tips & Tricks; ·         Vimeo Developer Workshops; and many more.

This will be our 3rd Indie Night at Film Society Of Lincoln Center, and although I have been programming movies for you for close to three years now, I have not yet been able to bring you any sci-fi films. That changes with this offering, and, man, it's been worth the wait.

We’re nearing the end of an ambitious Kickstarter campaign for an independent film, “The Sisterhood of Night.” Adapted from a short story by Pulitzer prize-winning author Steven Millhauser, our movie is a modern twist on the Salem witch trials. It deals with teen girls and the wild west of the Internet, its potential for casual, breathtaking cruelty, and its capacity to connect and share - all slippery new challenges to this transitional generation. "The Sisterhood of Night" is about holding close what makes you different, through diversity of thought and culture. It shines a light on the dangers of cyberbullying, but it also suggests that there are ways of using the Internet to find your inner creative spirit and tap into positivity.

I want you to come see Mark Jackson's WITHOUT. It truly is one of my favorite films of the past year and I am thrilled I can show it to you. WITHOUT has won numerous awards, including most recently, the Indie Spirit Someone To Watch Award. It is a remarkable film, made even more remarkable by the fact that it is a first feature, and one made for a micro, micro budget. Not only is Mark a directing talent to watch, so is the star Joslyn Jensen, and the DP & Producer Jessica Dimmock.
