Scout Film Festival (Scout)—is an annual international event that celebrates emerging filmmakers through short film. Every year, Scout launches an open call to filmmakers worldwide. All films are written, produced and directed by filmmakers 18 and under with two separate categories for filmmakers aged 19 to 24.
Located in Stowe, Vermont—Scout produces a 3-day event each year to honor the passion, talent and accomplishments of these young storytellers by showcasing their films. As part of the celebration—Scout organizes an opening reception, an awards ceremony, and a networking brunch. Additionally, to further support the attending filmmakers—Scout coordinates a series of educational programs with industry partners that include workshops and talks.
A 501c3 non-profit organization—the mission of Scout Film Festival is to encourage creative work, connect young filmmakers with their peers and celebrate the open expression of today’s youth through film.
