The folks at YouTube and the Sundance Film Festival have teamed up once again this year for Project: Direct, a program that supports truly indie filmmakers by allowing them the opportunity to win their way into the Sundance line-up. If you are a wannabe director, all you have to do is follow a few simple rules in order to enter. These rules are explained below in an introductory video featuring Pi and The Fountain director Darren Aronofsky.

Check out the video introduction below:

So there you have it — a pretty simple contest with an awesome payoff. From my experience, Sundance is one of those experiences that you rarely find elsewhere in the world of film. And for an up and coming filmmaker, it is potentially the most important event within the United States. Get out there and gather your props, put together your cast and submit your film. Who knows, maybe one of FSR’s readers will be the winner — if that happens, I will buy you dinner during the festival. Seriously people, it is time to get out there and grab your dreams by the scrotum.

For more information, head over to the Project: Direct page on YouTube.
