Vimeo, the artsier sibling of YouTube and other less curated video-sharing sites, has just announced their favorite videos of 2015. Pulling from their immense collection of “Staff Picks” throughout the year, Vimeo has selected the best videos in categories like documentary, experimental and music. Some, like the winning documentary “Guerrilla Fighters of Kurdistan,” are bracingly real, while others, like the experimental winner “INPUT/OUTPUT,” are charmingly off-the-wall. Scroll through to see Indiewire’s favorite of the 2015 Vimeo winners, and click here for the rest of their year end picks.
First place in Vimeo’s “Music” category is the music video for Tame Impala’s psychedelic “The Less I Know The Better,” from CANADA, an international collective of directors based in Barcelona and London.
The “Animation” winner is the haunting “Coda,” a macabre short film from and maps and planes, a small animation company based in Dublin.
In the “Experimental” category is “INPUT/OUTPUT,” a perplexing but visually stunning experience in expectations by Terri Timely, a collaborative filmmaking project.
In the “Narrative” slot is the uber violent, NSFW “Power/Rangers,” from filmmaker Joseph Kahn.
