Six weeks ago The Tribeca Film Festival challenged budding film makers to push Twitter’s Vine app to the limit and create a six-second looping film. Tips to budding Vine makers included telling a story with a beginning, middle, and end whilst embracing Vine’s features such as looping and time manipulation.

The judges chose their favourites from over 400 entries and announced the winners in each category for the first ever ‘mini festival just for Vines’.

Take a peek at the winning entries:

Category: Genre – “This is the category for all the sci-fi Vines, western Vines, LOLcat Vines, and comedy Vines.”

Matt Swinsky. #LazerAndDonald close shave. Retrieved from Vine.co

Category: Auteur – “These Vines told a story or script that was truly unique. A tiny, concentrated expression of the filmmaker’s vision.”

Category: Animate – “This category was for filmmakers that saw Vine as the perfect medium for some creative animation and don’t want to deal with the live-action riffraff.”
