We are interested in all narrative, animated, and documentary films meeting the criteria that follows:

All submissions must feature women either starring or co-starring as a physical action character.

Look, we’re not concerned whether or not a man or woman writes, directs, or produces these projects. We just want to celebrate women in kick ass roles.

Shorts - up to 40 minutes.

For narrative films, any genre that features action. For example Terminator 2: Sci-Fi/Action; Aliens: Horror/Action; and The Heat: Comedy/Action.

Animated films, any film that features action. For example Frozen, Brave, Tangled,and The Croods.

Documentary films are open to any stories about women in the armed forces, public service (police force, fire fighters, paramedics, etc.), pro and non-pro sports, basically any story that celebrates women in action or depicts heroic acts.
