New to this year's competition is the chance for online audiences to watch the entries here and vote for their favorites. One lucky crowd favorite will receive the #6secfilms Audience Award. There is a ticking clock though. Online Audience members have until April 12th to cast their vote. 

The #6SecFilms contest itself debuted last year and was a great success. It marks the advent of an exciting new exercise in filmmaking skill and brevity. As Genna Terranova, TFF's Director of programming, said, "Making a successful 6-second film is really a true test of creativity and skill. The tools may be simple, but the time is short and the task to do it well is large... Encouraging innovation in storytelling is a cornerstone of Tribeca. Last year was proof that new talent is as evident in six seconds as it is in 6,000. We look forward to seeing what this year will bring as we open it up to international submissions for the first time."

Check out last year's winners here for inspiration. Several winners of last year's contests saw their careers take off. So give it a shot! What have you got to lose? Vine stardom could be only six seconds away. Find out more details here.
