Third Annual Scout Film Festival JANUARY 4-6, 2019

Submissions for 2018 Scout Film Festival are now closed.

We received an incredible 2,164 submissions from 105 countries. 

Official selections will be announced by October 17, all filmmakers have already been notified of festival status. Interestingly, half of our selected films were written or directed by a Female Filmmaker. We purposely narrowed our list blind to certain information, as an experiment, so this distinction reflects genuine merit as well as the happy indication more female filmmakers are out there, being supported and submitting work!

Congratulations to all of you for choosing to pursue storytelling. 

Your film is your voice and we hear you!
