Viewster is a little different from it's better-known rivals. The site has been supporting indie film for some time through it's Viewster Online Film Festival initiative. For it's 5 incarnation, VOFF is celebrating the art of the animated short with the theme of 'Animated Worlds'.
The site is hosting a whopping 170 animated shorts from 37 different countries. Until March 28th viewers can help narrow it down to a short-list of 10 which will go on to compete for the prize of $50,000. The ultimate winner will be decided by the Jury which consists of (voice actor) Yuri Lowenthal,
Samantha Youseff (animation director), Athena Yvette
Portillo (producer), Christophe
Vacher and Michael
Schlingmann (animators) .
Head over to the site to watch some shorts and help decide who takes home that impressive prize fund!
