2020 Scout Grants for Emerging Filmmakers

JURASSIC WORLD’S COLIN TREVORROW SPONSORS SCOUT FILM FESTIVAL EMERGING FILMMAKER GRANTS

Scout is thrilled to offer the Grant for Emerging Filmmakers. For the second year, this grant is sponsored by American director and screenwriter, Colin Trevorrow, known for the indie film Safety Not Guaranteed (2012), and the blockbuster hit Jurassic World.

As part of Scout's Career Development Program, in partnership with Visura.co, this open call is an opportunity for two emerging filmmakers to receive $5,000.00 in cash for the completion of a new short film or work in progress in one of two separate age categories; 18 and Under or 19 to 24. The winners will be announced and prize distributed during the 2020 Scout Film Festival in Boston, MA.

The mission of the grant is to 1) recognize filmmakers aged 24 and under; 2) support a new film or work in progress; 3) bring the work of filmmakers to key industry leaders worldwide; and 4) support the next generation of film leaders.
