World Scout Film Fest 2018
Are you a filmmaker with a story to tell? Then we want to hear from you! The very first World Scout Film Festival is now open for entries, and we want to see your films about Scouting and how young people are helping create a better world.

We are looking for films in three categories – short film (fiction), short film (documentary) and Social media video. You might find inspiration in the way Scouts are helping refugees and migrants, or the work they’re doing to address climate change or tackle gender equality. The only criteria is that there is a link to Scouting in the story and that Scouts are involved in the film’s production.

We’ve assembled an international jury that includes not only experts on Scouting, but also two award-winning filmmakers. For more information on the type of films that are eligible and how to submit your entry click here. The last day for submissions was 30 August 2018.
