The Cannes Film Festival will kick off tonight with a special performance by Lady Gaga for all the A-list stars in attendance, and aside from the usual lineup of films hopeful to win awards, Cannes has also released an opportunity for filmmakers to create a short for a charity organization.

The “48 Hour Ad Project” hopes to bring the best in creative minds to the most needy of organizations so that the spots will help bring awareness to a worthy cause.

The contest is open to filmmakers between the ages of 18 and 28 who will have just 48 hours to create a one minute spot for the chosen charity organization. On Friday, May 13th the Cannes Festival will post a video about the non-profit, and by midnight on Sunday, May 15th you’ll have to submit your video for a chance to win.

So, just what do you win? Well, aside from the fact that you’ll be helping a non-profit gain crazy exposure, YouTube will fly you out for an all-expenses paid trip from June 19-25 to the Cannes Lions International Festival to compete for a chance to win the Young Lions Film Competition.

For full contest details and tips on how to win big, visit the YouTube page here.

We’d love an Ecorazzi reader to win this competition, is anyone thinking of participating?
