Powered by Scenes Plus and Fancy a Movie!

The Clout Film Festival seeks to showcase the best independent films from around the world and power up filmmakers to take their film from festival to TV.

Clout is the festival for filmmakers to show their work and connect with audiences.
We have a team of curators who will carefully select the films that will be featured on the ‘Fancy a Movie’ and ‘Scenes Plus Prime Time’ channels. Plus with live screenings throughout Northern California, you'll get a chance to experience immediate audience feedback.

With our partners Rhebus, Roku and Amazon Fire TV, selected winners will win an exclusive 2 year streaming contract, propelling their film straight to Roku and Amazon Fire TV.

Re-energize your cast and crew, re-promote and re-debut your film. Have your fans, friends and colleagues power up and tune in to your film on their connected TVs.

With over 180 million connected viewers, Clout is giving filmmakers the chance to connect with the world via Roku and Amazon Fire TV, get introduced to industry professionals and build relationships with potential distributors. We are dedicated to creating the space where filmmakers can share their stories, connect with audiences and power up their careers!
