The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston

Welcome to Scout Film Festival (Scout)—a 501c3 non-profit organization that produces an annual international event celebrating emerging filmmakers - aged 24 and under - through film. Our mission is to empower and connect filmmakers and audiences through a curated collection of diverse stories. Our team works to encourage creative thinking, connect emerging filmmakers with peers and industry leaders, and engage youth in making the world a better place through film.

The 2020 Scout Film Festival 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.

From April 16-18, 2020— Scout's community of film lovers, storytellers, artists, and educators will celebrate 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.

Submissions have closed for 2020 festival films, BUT we are accepting submissions to the Scout Emerging Filmmakers Grant sponsored for the second year by American Director and Screenwriter, Colin Trevorrow - known for the indie film Safety Not Guaranteed and the blockbuster Jurassic World.

The DEADLINE for the Emerging Filmmaker Grant is February 20, 2020.
