Scout Film Festival is excited to announce its 2022 Emerging Filmmakers Grants sponsored for the third year by director, writer, and producer Colin Trevorrow, known for the indie film SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED (2012) and the blockbuster hit JURASSIC WORLD.

SUBMISSIONS ARE FREE:  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 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 winner will be announced at this year's Scout Film Festival in Boston, Massachusetts.

The mission of the Grants is to 1) recognize diverse emerging filmmakers aged 24 and under from around the world; 2) support a recently completed short film or work in progress; 3) connect emerging filmmakers with key industry leaders; and, 4) support the next generation of filmmakers worldwide.

DEADLINE: August 19, 2022, at 11:59:00 p.m. EST


Scout is also inviting filmmakers aged 24 and under to submit their short films for an opportunity to be showcased during Scout Film Festival October 27-30 in Boston! The festival recently launched TALL SHORTS, a new category showcasing the work of creators aged 24 and under working in vertical format short content. Through TALL SHORTS, the festival continues to celebrate evolution and innovation in storytelling, style, and craft. Submissions are accepted through FilmFreeway - Submission Deadline July 29.
