Your Film Fesival is a global competition produced by YouTube, Emirates, the Venice Film Festival and Ridley and Tony Scott’s Scott Free Productions. Fassbender will help select the Grand Prize Winner and co-executive produce the winner’s next film. Contenders will submit a 15-minute “story-driven video” of any format, style and genre to the YouTube site by March 31. After submissions are whittled to 50 semi-finalists, YouTube users will cast their votes, choosing 10 finalists. They will travel to Italy, where their work will screen at the 69th Venice International Film Festival and a Grand Prize winner will be named. Fassbender’s next film is Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. He won Best Actor in Venice for his performance in Shame.
