Want to watch some highly acclaimed short films for free?  CineVegas is preparing to launch a “CineVegas Shorts Online” channel on Veoh.com.

A little catch-up may be necessary before we continue, however, in the event those names aren’t immediately familiar.  After all, Veoh isn’t the most popular video site out there – recent data from Hitwise puts its market share at a paltry 1.57 percent.  And CineVegas probably isn’t the most famous film festival – it’s listed nowhere among the dozens of what Wikipedia has deemed “significant or notable festivals.”

On the other hand, that 1.57 percent is good enough to put Veoh in sixth place (behind MSN Video), and CineVegas has ties to Anthony Hopkins and Jack Nicholson.  YouTube and Cannes they’re not, but Veoh and CineVegas shouldn’t be sniffed at.

So, back to CineVegas Shorts Online.  The channel “will present shorts the Festival has shown in the past, as well as bodies of work from former CineVegas filmmakers,” according to a press release.  “A new video installment will be introduced every two weeks, each highlighting a specific filmmaker, and starting in January 2008, the Festival will showcase ‘best of’ compilations on the site.”

Sounds like it’ll be worth checking in on.  Hat tip to Mashable’s Kristen Nicole.

Top Rated White Papers and Resources

    Veoh is a cool video site, infact very cool, sure there is sites like METACAFE ( besides Google ) but honestly, metacafe is struggling and trying to make profits, their videos have become unwatchable since they filled the site with annoying advertisements and pre-rolls on the videos.

    I like veoh and i think veoh is going places, but the real question is at what price… because they wont be able to afford bandwidth at the rate they are going, besides who dares to compete with Google, seriously, when it comes to bandwidth only Google can avoid sweating..

    I would also recommend posting your coolest photos on motiono.com as well as videos. motiono is a superb video site.
