Yahoo Viddsee Press Release
Yahoo brings the best of Asian short films to its users across Singapore, Malaysia, and Philippines thereby celebrating cinema and recognizing talented filmmakers. Short films are a ground breaking, inclusive and accessible platform for exciting and engaging story telling. Yahoo has collaborated with Viddsee, an online video platform for curated, quality micro-cinema content to bring short films to the forefront.
