Dear Filmmakers, Festival Friends and Family,
It has been a long year and we miss you!
After a lot of thought, reflection and thorough discussions, we are excited to present the Scout Film Festival event online during the month of February, 2021! We are excited about our catalog of films and live programming, and want to give the event the attention and audience it deserves.
In a nutshell, Scout will produce TWO film festivals in 2021.
In February, Scout will celebrate and feature the 2020 official selections! Scout's live programming will include Key Guest Speakers, seminars, workshops and interviews.
We have flexed our creative, problem-solving muscles to make this coming year twice as nice! We are now in full production mode, and our new website reflects our excitement.
We will publish our program for the Winter Festival very soon so stay tuned through our newsletter and social places!
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any feedback, questions, or suggestions for how we can make Scout Film Festival a meaningful experience!
Local Love, Global Love.
Your Scout Team
Spotlight On Scout Industry Juror Phil Clarke
Phil Clarke (aka philmscribe) is a UK-based script consultant and screenwriter with over twenty years service to cinema.
After years working at the coal face of film on such features as Sleepy Hollow, Enigma, The Beach and two of the biggest box office franchises: Star Wars and Harry Potter, he turned to writing - both for the page and the screen. His screenplays have been optioned both in the UK and Hollywood and his books have been published worldwide.
These days Phil works as a script consultant; his clients have won or placed highly at major script competitions, had their projects optioned, while others have gone on to be produced, the best debuting at Cannes.
We are thrilled to have Phil's meticulous eye and generous spirit on our Jury, evaluating and enjoying stories by emerging filmmakers from all over the world.
