Thank you for your candor and for trusting us to hear you.

Scout invites filmmakers 18 and under to submit your short film(s) for consideration in the following categories: Animation, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Experimental, Female Filmmaker, Horror, Made in VT, Music Video, Public Service Announcement, TV or Other Broadcast AND...
