"The Guilt" Spanish short film wins YouTube’s Your Film Festival (video)

PanARMENIAN.Net - David Victori's short film "The Guilt" has been named winner of the first Your Film Festival, an online competition jointly sponsored by YouTube and Emirates in partnership with the Venice Film Festival and Scott Free Productions, The Wrap said.

The award was announced on Sunday, September 2 in Venice, where the 10 finalists had been flown for the ceremony. Michael Fassbender announced the winner, who will receive $500,000 for his next project. Fassbender and Ridley Scott will serve as executive producers on that project.

Your Film Festival asked content creators to submit a 15-minute, story-driven film of any format, style and genre. The 50 finalists were chosen by Scott Free, the production company run by Ridley Scott and his late brother Tony Scott. Voters on YouTube selected the 10 finalists, and a jury chose the winner by considering both the submitted films and the filmmakers' vision for their next projects.

"The Guilt" is a 12-minute, Spanish-language short about a man consumed by thoughts of revenge in the wake of his wife's death.
