New judges: James Franco, Aziz Ansari, Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood, and more

Since the Vimeo Festival + Awards are all about the best videos, it only makes sense to have the best judges. And, well, we think we’ve done it. We’re thrilled to announce some big additions to the panel of people who will lay eyeballs on your submissions:

Actor, director, and total Renaissance man James Franco (Narrative); Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari (Series), 2012 Oscar Nominee Lucy Walker (Documentary); Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood (Music Video); Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright (Series); snowboard superstar Travis Rice (Action Sports); Thierry Mugler and UNIQLO creative director Nicola Formichetti (Fashion); DreamWorks’ Shelley Page (Animation); and The Museum of Modern Art’s Barbara London (Captured).

And those are just some of the boldfaced names we have in store for you. We’ll unveil more soon — plus announce the host of this year’s ceremony! See all the judges.
