Michael Fassbender and director David Victori pose with Victori’s Your Film Festival Award on Monday (September 03, 2012), which he won for his short film The Guilt.
The Spanish filmmaker won the first ever edition of YouTube’s Your Film Festival during the Venice Film Festival, and he gets to take home a prize of $500,000.
Jury member Michael Fassbender said: “Choosing a Your Film Festival winner from the ten finalists was a tough decision. They all showed such creativity and a strong understanding of the filmmaking process. David is clearly a talented director and I can’t wait to work with him and Ridley on his new YouTube project.”
Victori will now be able to create original online content for YouTube with Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender acting as executive producers.
The winner was selected from 15,000 submissions. Scott Free originally narrowed the search to 50 semi-finalists and the YouTube community chose the final ten films. Fassbender and Scott were among the jurors.
The Guilt, which folllows a man hell-bent on revenge after the murder of his wife, can be viewed here.
