About

Scout Film Festival (Scout)—is a 501c3 non-profit organization that produces an annual international event celebrating emerging filmmakers - aged 24 and under - through film. Our mission is to empower and connect filmmakers and audiences through a curated collection of diverse stories. Our team works to encourage creative thinking, connect emerging filmmakers with peers and industry leaders, and engage youth in making the world a better place through film. 

Founded by Anna Colavito and cofounder Adriana Teresa Letorney with the vision of providing an international platform for young filmmakers to connect—Scout has developed into a global community network of thoughtful and creative thinkers; visual storytellers, industry professionals, and partner organizations. Together, we work to empower young filmmakers - future leaders. 

Over 4000 filmmakers aged 24 and under from 105 countries have submitted their films.  

In 2018, we launched a Career Development Program that offers grants, workshops, and mentorships with award-winning film industry leaders. The Emerging Storytellers Grant is sponsored by Jurassic World's Writer and Director, Colin Trevorrow.
