The Champaign-Urbana Film Society, Champaign Movie Makers, and the Champaign-Urbana Design Organization are once again partnering to present this totally unique program where East Central Illinois K-12 students write original screenplays which are then made into short films by local filmmakers.
Area graphic designers and illustrators also pitch in with the creation of original movie posters for many of the submitted screenplays.
On August 13th, the whole community is invited to come out and see the finished films, walk the red carpet, and celebrate some very creative student writing.
Awards are presented at each show time. The 2pm screening features films written by K-8th grade students, and the 6pm screening features films written by 8th-12th grade students.
