    “25 years after the first GIF was created, they are experiencing an explosion of interest and innovation that is pushing them into the terrain of art.” In this short documentary, PBS charts the history of the GIF, explore the hotbed of GIF creativity on Tumblr, and talk to two teams of GIF artists who are evolving the form into powerful new visual experiences. Very cool.
