Connection: a link, a bond, a relationship.

People form connections everywhere – to other individuals, to communities, to countries, to nature. We attach meanings to objects. We connect ideas. We link letters to form words and make sense of events through connection. We are interrelated more than isolated.


Entrants may create a piece of fiction, a documentary, a community-service announcement or a music clip (be sure to adhere to copyright rules!). Submitted films can be animated or live-action – funny or serious.
