Vimeo program will help successfully crowdfunded videos with their marketing, helping these filmmakers in their next stage of production.

Vimeo announced a new program that will provide up to $500,000 in aid to filmmakers whose projects have been successfully crowdfunded, but who may need help getting the film noticed.

Vimeo will be looking at films that have been funded through sites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo, and will provide help with website creation, online campaigns and social media. In return for this marketing help, Vimeo is given the rights to distribute the film exclusively on its Vimeo On Demand channel. Vimeo General Manager of Audience Networks, Greg Clayman said in a statement:
