Announcing Scout Film Festival Best-in-Category Nominees

Thank you all for submitting your funny, creepy, gorgeous, profound, thoughtful, funky, sophisticated films. Your work is so good and so prolific and so globally representative it is an embarrassment of riches. You made it tough for the Scout Screening Committee to narrow down to Best-in-Category Nominees and so we have a robust list of nominees and a rich program of official selections beyond that. Congratulations to all our nominees and our official selection filmmakers alike. Stay tuned for another note listing all films and filmmakers in the complete festival program.
THANK YOU for sharing your talents and for investing in each other through storytelling, by making possible this first Scout Film Festival celebration and connection of teen filmmakers through YOUR film.
