The Lower East Side Film Festival continually looks to find new ways to engage our audience outside of the four walls of the movie theater. In the past, LESFF has hosted a Zipcar Drive-In Movie Theater, a Google Glass Interactive Screening & Demo, a Vimeo Documentary Night, A Father's Day Campaign for Dove Men +Care, a Live Photo Installation for Squarespace, a Dark Horse Wine Filmmaker Lounge, and many other unique activations for our sponsors.



Vimeo Doc Shorts

The Lower East Side Film Festival showcases a highly curated selection of feature and short films. To help make the festival's screening schedule as accessible as possible, showcases are broken down into theme screenings. From Doc Shorts, to Animation Night, Mind F*ck Night, and Neighborhood Night, each night is themed to create it's own unique experience.  As host of Doc Shorts Night, Vimeo is the exclusive partner of the night, with branding and brand activations on-site.
