The sixth annual festival features keynote speakers including Ryan and Ethan Hawke, Actress DeWanda Wise and filmmaker Colin Trevorrow of Jurassic World Dominion, and National Geographic’s Whitney C. Johnson.
The educational program includes a workshop sponsored by WIFVNE! "Fanny Packs are In: Your Kick-Ass, Get a Job Production Assistant Workshop" will be facilitated by WIFVNE President Emeritus, Alecia Orsini, and WIFVNE Board Vice President, Nerissa Williams Scott on Saturday, October 29 10:30am-1:00pm.
Founded by WIFVNE Vermont State Chair, Anna Colavito, Scout is a 501c3, international film festival which supports, empowers, and connects emerging filmmakers and visual storytellers worldwide aged 24 and under working in short film, photography, and innovation.
Last year Scout received over 3000 submissions from 109 countries!
The 3-day event offers screenings, keynote speakers, and educational programming with leading industry professionals, creators, and entrepreneurs. Scout is more than a film festival for youth, it is a destination for audiences at large to learn about the incredible work that is being produced by youth in film, entrepreneurship, visual storytelling, and beyond.
