Welcome to YouTube Project Direct, our first film competition and – drumroll, please – our first international contest ever!



If you’re ready to turn your craft into your career, direct an original short film incorporating three key elements, outlined for you here by award-winning filmmaker, Jason Reitman, and you could get the exposure you need.







Submit your film by November 9, and Jason and a panel of industry experts, including studio executives and Hollywood agents, will review your films and choose the top twenty. Starting November 24th, the YouTube community will vote for a final winner.



Check out the Project Direct channel to see what’s up for grabs!



Good luck!
