YouTube has today launched a new global competition called Your Film Festival, which will see one aspiring film-maker win $500,000 and work with Ridley Scott to bring their ideas to life on the big screen. For a budding film-maker, it really doesn’t get any better than that.

In association with the Venice Film Festival and Emirates, those looking to win the prize are tasked with making the most compelling short film (under 15 minutes in length hosted on YouTube) that they can.

The best films will then be subjected to a public vote, with the winner getting the chance to turn their short film into a feature length one with guidance from directorial legend Ridley Scott.

You’ve only got until March 31st, so get cracking! Click here for more info.
