Vimeo Director’s Commentary Screening

A person talking during a film can be the most annoying thing imaginable – unless that person is the director. Join Vimeo curator Meghan Oretsky as she screens Staff Picked films with live, unscripted commentary from some of the best creators on Vimeo. Founded in 2008, Vimeo Staff Picks has emerged as one of the preeminent channels for online video and one of the most coveted awards for young filmmakers, having helped launch the careers of many celebrated directors. Hear from the next generation of storytellers in a format that’s sure to be eclectic and insightful. The entire program will screen once, then a second time with commentary by the directors.
