TL;DR Vine is an App. It’s like Instagram for 6 second videos with sound. It’s been just slapped NC-17 rating, so we’re throwing the Unofficial Vine NC-17 #VeryShortFilmFest without asking them. Send us your arty and/or porny Vine with the hashtag #VeryShortFilmFest or email us a 6 second video with sound to tips@animalnewyork.com before Tuesday, February 19th. Our judges — Stoya, Casey Neistat, Clayton Cubitt and more — will pick a winner. You can win $100 and fight censorship. We already have some amazing original art submissions. Here are some more of the provocative nature.

Guess what? We’re going to have a net and IRL pop-up exhibit of the besty arty and/or porny Vines. We’re going to have an online exhibit with the best entires. A film festival in Paris is going to screen the Vines. Yes. Do it to it.

Don’t forget to turn the sound on!

Remember, you do not have to have Vine to participate! Just email us your 6 second video to tips@animalnewyork.com with the subject “Very Short Film Fest” and we’ll Vine it for you. Also, do not use the #XXX tag. You may submit up to 10 films.

MORE DETAILS! We encourage international submissions of any degree of salaciousness by artists/filmmakers/pornographers/etc. Entries will be judged based on aesthetics, impact, creative use of the medium and bravery.

Casey Neistat is a New York-based filmmaker with an HBO showno fear and hell of a lot to teach you.

Stoya is an International Porn Superstar, activist and an enigma wrapped in a mystery swinging off aerial silk, right into your heart.

Clayton Cubitt aka Siege is a notorious, possibly magical Brooklyn and New Orleans-based photographer and filmmaker, storyteller and eyebrow-raiser in the best way. Consider his orgasmic project Hysterical Literature.

Nate “Igor” Smith is Driven By Boredom. He’s a New York photographer, blogger, man about town, friend of the porn industry and maker of amazing images.

Zoetica Ebb is a Moscow-born, LA-raised artist, writer and photographer currently working on The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing — a video travel guide series giving insight into the skyrocketing alternative art, fashion, music, and nightlife culture in Beijing — and beastly botanical art series Alien Botany. And she may be from space.

First prize winner will get $100. Three runners up will be selected and receive $10 each and some ANIMAL stickers. Additionally, ANIMAL will curate an online and IRL exhibition/screening of the best film festival entries, if a theme organically emerges, and you will be #famous. Also, your Vine might going to Paris with Panic! Cinéma.

And don’t worry. The internet police isn’t going after you. Vine’s Terms of Service do not explicitly prohibit explicit imagery, so do it to it.
