Category Rules

All short films must have a run time of under 30 minutes.

Please clearly label your disc with your TRACKING NUMBER, TITLE, RUN TIME, and ASPECT RATIO.

Do not attach labels directly to your disc as they can negatively effect our DVD players.

Even if you are submitting to a United 6 or United 3 Package, please only send ONE COPY of your DVD. We take on the responsibility of distributing your film to the various programmers for each festival and hope this helps with the time and expense of submitting to multiple festivals.

If you have entered a United 3 or 6 package, you may choose to submit to all festivals in your package through Withoutabox. Currently, all festivals are separate listings.
To apply for a United 3 or United 6 Package on Withoutabox:
1. Submit your film in the first city you would like to be considered in and pay for the entire package in that city.
2. Then, for all the other cities in your package, go through the process of submitting to each listing as normal, and when prompted for payment, utilize a waiver code so that you do not incur any more fees.
3. The waiver code is simply the name of your package deal (United 3 OR United 6). Under the box marked ‘Reason’ provide the Withoutabox tracking number of the festival to which you originally submitted. See the example below:
Waiver Code: United 3
Reason: NY-1234-SHO

Submitters to United 3 packages can also email us directly with their three desired festivals at: info@theunitedfest.com.

Make check or money order payable to Connell Creations, Inc.
