B) We accept every type of filmmaking form and style; whether animation or live-action, documentary or narrative.

I) Films must be submitted by the deadline to qualify. No late submissions will be accepted.

J) If your film contains any graphic content, include a warning near the beginning of the film. ConnectHER has full discretion about accepting films, particularly in instances where film submissions contain nudity, profanity, violence, or sexually explicit content.
