James Franco, Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood and More to Jury the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards

James Franco, Radiohead's Colin Greenwood and More to Jury the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards

Vimeo has announced a jury collection for the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards that includes James Franco (of course!), Aziz Ansari, Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood, Edgar Wright, designer Thierry Mugler and UNIQLO creative director Nicola Formichetti.

The panel consists of three judges per category across 13 categories. More jurors are still to be named; ultimately, three jurors will oversee each section.

Unlike most short film festivals, which prohibit work that has premiered online, Vimeo requires it. Filmmakers can submit any original work as long as it premiered online between July 31, 2010 and February 20, 2012, or any original work that has never premiered anywhere. 

The winner in each category receives $5,000; the Grand Prize winner receives $25,000. Full details here. The entry deadline is February 20.
