And there we were thinking Vine — the six-second looping video app which Twitter launched in January — was only good for poorly-edited cat clips, Roseanne Barr’s swear-filled how-tos, and messy eating montages.

Turns out there’s a whole art form behind them which Tribeca Film Festival celebrated over the weekend, announcing the winners across four categories of their #6SecFilms competition.

They had about 400 submissions in all (it’s still a VERY fledgeling genre), which was whittled down to 40 across the categories of Auteur, Genre, Animation and Series.
