Holi Festival, a religious Hindu event celebrated in the springtime, is marked by the throwing of brightly colored, scented powder. Held around the world, but concentrated in India, Holi is an event on more than a few bucket lists.

Though Holi has been celebrated for ages, the festival garnered more recognition this year with the production of some remarkably beautiful videos. It seems that developments in videography and editing has offered filmmakers the techniques necessary to do justice to this unique tradition.

One of the videos making headlines is by production company Variable, who published the short, but powerful clip on Vimeo. The director uses slow-motion techniques and tight shots to illustrate the beauty of the celebration, creating captivating images.
