On Shortlist for Dream Win

Outrageous Fortune actor Tammy Davis’ short film Ebony Society has been picked as a semi-finalist for the first international Your Film Festival. The competition is described as a global hunt to find the world’s best storytellers, and Davis’ film has beaten more than 15,000 entries from 160 countries to make the competition’s Top 50 shortlist. After a public vote, the top ten finalists will then screen at the Venice Film Festival and the winner will get to work with the competition’s organiser, director Ridley Scott and Prometheus star Michael Fassbender, and a US$500,000 production grant. Davis says it would be a dream to win the competition. “It would be amazing to win and incredible to work with Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender.”
