Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston Partners With Scout To Present 2020 Film Festival

Oct 15, 2019

Scout Film Festival returns for its fourth year from April 17-18, 2020! We are honored and delighted to announce that this year's event will be hosted by the iconic Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), a breathtaking waterfront art museum and exhibition space located in Boston, Massachusetts. The ICA's innovative exhibitions, performances, and educational programs provide access to contemporary art, artists, and the creative process, inviting audiences of all ages and backgrounds to participate in the excitement of new art and ideas.

The ICA has a strong institutional commitment to teens, stemming from the recognition that teens are our future artists, leaders, and audiences. The ICA serves more than 6,000 teens each year, and the museum has emerged as a national leader in the field of museum arts education for teens. For over 20 years, the ICA has worked with young filmmakers in its award-winning program Fast Forward. Through the Teen Arts Education Hub, their goal is to serve as a central resource and network for teen arts education professionals in museums and beyond, reinventing how arts institutions work with young people nationwide.

“A robust arts education is critical to building future artists, audiences, and engaged citizens. We are honored to be working with Scout to present this film festival to Boston audiences. It is a great opportunity to amplify the work of another organization working to engage youth to make the world a better place through the arts.” said Betsy Gibbons, the ICA’s Director of Teen Programs.

We at Scout feel very lucky to have found a partner with truly aligned mission and goals!

Scout's community of film lovers, storytellers, artists, and educators will once again be celebrating the future of filmmaking with screenings, talks, workshops and networking events. The Red Carpet main event will be held on Friday, April 17th at ICA.

This exciting new expansion is only possible with the support of our partners and filmmakers; our host and event partner ICA; and our founding partners Visura.co & Barr Law Group.

We have more Scout Organization and Festival news coming, so please stay tuned.

We can't wait to see you in Boston next April!

Local Love, Global Love
