Winners of the Cynopis Short Form Video Festival

The Cynopsis Short Form Video Festival assembled the brightest minds, cutting-edge creatives and experienced executives from the industry’s leading brands, agencies, publishers and production companies. The Festival consisted of panels, awards, video screenings and a networking reception. Video partners included Situation and ProcamNY.

The business-focused part of the day featured brand-centric case studies from companies such as State Farm, Under Armour, NBCUniversal, and more, ROI discussions on monetizing short form video as well as an exclusive behind the scenes Q&A with the team behind Time’s “Person of the Year” viral video campaign were held.

Cynopsis closed out the day by honoring short form video award finalists and screening winning entries, followed by a lively networking reception. The awards were announced by the following guest presenters and short form stars in their own right: Actress and comedian Monique Moses; chef, television host and author, James Briscione; and the Executive Director of IVFest, Phil Gilpin.
