In 2015, Scout was founded by Anna Colavito and cofounder Adriana Teresa Letorney (Founder, Visura) to support and empower student filmmakers worldwide.

The goal was to build an international festival for emerging filmmakers to connect and share their work. Scout has evolved into a festival with an educational program that offers grants, resources, and other opportunities. 

Since its inauguration, over 6000 filmmakers aged 24 and under from 105 countries have submitted their films.

Scout is a global community network of thoughtful and creative thinkers; visual storytellers, industry professionals, and partner organizations. Together, we work to empower young filmmakers - future leaders.

Scout offers a home where emerging storytellers become energized with access to resources, direction, opportunities, connectivity, support, and a community of like-minded peers.
