World Premiere


Tribeca Digital Creators Market Special Screening
| USA | 81 MINUTES | English | English subtitles
YouTube may have begun as a website for videos of cats and funny babies, but it is now home to vloggers: video diarists who have conjured a massive audience and wild financial success by filming themselves, their thoughts and their daily lives. Vlogumentary pulls the curtain back on this new media revolution by following some of the top vloggers in the business, examining how they work, what they have to say and why their fans prefer videos of real life over traditional entertainment. Featuring Shay Carl, Swoozie, Grace Helbig, Charles Trippy and Gaby Dunn, Mikey Murphy.

Special Screening debuting alongside the Tribeca Digital Creators Market.

After the Screening: a conversation with Matthew Testa, Mikey Murphy, Gaby Dunn, Shay and Collette Butler and Charles Trippy. Moderated by Morgan Spurlock.

Preceded by an episode of Song Voyage, created by Portal A and co-created by the Gregory Brothers.
A subversive comedy following the Gregory Brothers, our musical heroes, as they travel the world to band together with offbeat musicians in remote locales. In each episode, the Gregory Brothers transform the various unforeseen challenges they encounter into wild success stories using their idiosyncratic brand of comedy and music.
