Watch: YouTube’s Film Festival Winner ‘The Guilt’

Why Watch? In partnership with the Venice Film Festival, YouTube’s Your Film Festival sought to find the best storytellers in the world and give them a platform on the video-sharing site. Yesterday, after thousands of entries and a Ridley Scott-narrowed group of 50 semi-finalists, a winner was announced.

David Victori will win $500,000 to go toward crafting original online content with Scott and Michael Fassbender. His short, The Guilt (La Culpa), is an ice-blooded revenge film with absolutely arresting camerawork. It uses tricky visuals to deliver a psychologically consumed protagonist and a purgatorial subtext that’s never too heavy-handed. In short, he’s one to watch, and he has the last name to prove it.

What will it cost you? Only 12 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
