What’s your next six seconds looking like? If you like prizes, you may want to consider breaking out your iPhone, downloading the Vine app and going Steven Spielberg on all your friends. This Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Bat Haus, the Vine Film Festival is giving out prizes for the best Vine flicks in all genres.

We’re unsure about a red carpet, but we’d say dress to the nines.
