YouTube Announces Short Film Competition: Your Film Festival

19 January 2012 1:00 PM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In what is quite possibly one of the most interesting pieces of news I’ve heard recently, YouTube have announced that they will be launching a film festival next month, entitled Your Film Festival, that will start off online and then send ten finalists to this year’s Venice Film Festival, which will run from 31st August to 10th September.

Yahoo Movies report that Your Film Festival will be accepting submissions of short films up to fifteen minutes in length from 2nd February to 31st March, from which fifty semi-finalists will be selected by Scott Free Productions, Ridley and Tony Scott’s production company, whose credits include Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, and American Gangster.

These fifty semi-finalists will then be launched on their own YouTube channel,, where viewers can watch and vote for their favourite short films. Ten finalists will then be jetted off to the 69th Venice Film Festival, »
