(AP) Spanish filmmaker David Victori has won the inaugural edition of YouTube's Your Film Festival for his short movie "The Guilt."


The winner was announced Sunday on the sidelines of the Venice Film Festival after selection by a jury that included director Ridley Scott and actor Michael Fassbender.


Victori, whose movie focuses on a man obsessed with revenge after his wife's murder, will receive $500,000 for his next project, with Scott and Fassbender acting as executive producers.


YouTube viewers chose the 10 finalists who traveled to Venice for the final selection after viewing the films on YouTube's channel www.YouTube.com/yourfilmfestival. The narrative-driven submissions could be no longer than 15 minutes in length.


YouTube has held film contests in the past, but the global Your Film Festival is on a much larger scale.
