- EXPERIMENTAL SHORT FILMS                                                           

Experimental short films rigorously re-evaluate cinematic conventions and explore non-narrative forms and alternatives to traditional narratives or methods of working. Many experimental films, particularly early ones, relate to arts in other disciplines: painting, dance, literature, and poetry, or arise from research and development of new technical resources.


Scout is delighted to share the official selection for this category.
