Your Film Festival
Your Film Festival is a competition looking for the world's best storytellers. It has been running since mid January and will end on 31st March 2012. The winner will be announced at the 2012 Venice Film Festival and will win $500,000 to create a new work, produced by Ridley Scott.
This is Your Film Festival. You have until March 31st to submit a short, story-driven video. There's no entry fee. It can be any format - short film, web-series episode, TV pilot - and any genre. In June, audiences around the world will vote, sending 10 deserving storytellers to open the 2012 Venice Film Festival where a Grand Prize Winner will be be rewarded with a $500,000 grant to create a new work, produced by Ridley Scott and his world class team.
It would be remiss of me if I did not tell you that the very talented (and gorgeous) Michael Fassbender is one of the jury members. Here's a video with him talking about the competition.
