Scout Film Festival is delighted to welcome you to "Scout / Hyperspace".

In celebration of our original festival dates - April 16-18 - Scout invites you to a 3-day online event celebrating emerging filmmakers worldwide aged 24 and under!

Scout's international community will enjoy the PREMIERE of the winning films from the 2019 Emerging Filmmakers Grant, select films from our archive, and we will be announcing the results of this year's Emerging Filmmakers Grant. The online event will include a conversation with Director & Screenwriter Colin Trevorrow, moderated by Sana Venjara, Journalist & Senior Producer at Time Inc. - sponsored by Visura.co.

At Scout Film Festival, we work tirelessly to provide opportunities to emerging filmmakers from all over the world, in a safe and supportive environment. We are grateful to our Host Partners The New England Aquarium and The Institute of Contemporary Art for their support of our global filmmakers and community.

Our hearts are with individuals and organizations around the world. We truly wish for everyone to be safe and healthy.

Our Hyperspace celebration will begin on Thursday, April 16 at 1:00pmEST. You can find our online schedule of events and films below. We hope you join us to celebrate incredible films by filmmakers aged 24 and under.
