SCOOP! is a new documentary short film festival brought to you by your friends at The Stranger, The Portland Mercury, and the wild folks behind HUMP, SLAY, and SPLIFF Film Fests.

We're looking for short documentaries (15 minutes or less) of all kinds. Educational, journalistic, humorous, or poetic—all documentary styles are welcome at SCOOP!

Cruise the eye-popping trailer below for a preview of what our jury is looking for, friends!

Submit your film by October 8 for a chance to be part of the 1st Annual SCOOP! premiering this November. Reminder: This is a documentary film fest, so we’re dealing with facts here. Don’t make shit up.

Support The Stranger

In addition to fancy award categories, SCOOP! will share a portion of all ticket revenue with filmmakers who make it into the festival.

So let's get on with it! Serve us your scoops, Sloggers!
