your film festival15 minutes to tell a story. Millions of people to watch it. £325,000 or $500,000 to make a new one for the world to see. YouTube has teamed up with Sir Ridley Scott, Scott Free London, the Venice Film Festival and Emirates to create Your Film Festival, a global competition that will provide one deserving entrant with £325,000 or half a million US dollars to work on their next great story.

Video: Announcing Your Film Festival

Starting February 2, you can submit your short, story-driven videos (15 minutes or less) on Youtube.com/yourfilmfestival. Entry is free and open to people 18 years of age and above, and all genres and formats are welcome: live action short, animation, documentary, web-series episode, TV pilot — you name it. Your video must be story-driven, and cannot have been publicly shown or distributed prior to January 1, 2010. Full rules are available on the Your Film Festival Channel.

From there, the Scott Free team will select 50 semi-finalists from across the globe by June 2012. YouTube users will then vote for their favorites to select 10 finalists, whose videos will then be screened at the 2012 Venice Film Festival. A jury led by Ridley Scott will crown one grand prize winner, who will receive a $500,000 production grant to work with Scott’s team to create a new story for the world to see
