ConnectHER Film Festival provides a compelling platform for young filmmakers to spotlight critical issues facing women and girls everywhere. Our unique film festival includes inspiring film screenings from various genres, thought-provoking panel discussions from industry insiders, and awards that celebrate emerging young filmmakers from around the globe.

To safeguard against COVID-19 and in keeping up with the World Health Organization’s guidelines for exposure, ConnectHER decided to replace this year’s ConnectHER Film Festival in Austin with a virtual web event.
