A project of the Champaign Urbana Film Society, Champaign Movie Makers, and Champaign Urbana Design Organization, Pens to Lens invites K-12 students in East Central Illinois to write and submit original screenplays, which are then made into short films by local filmmakers with original posters by the local design community.
At this special 3rd annual gala screening, the whole community is invited to see the finished films, walk the red carpet, and celebrate student writing, with awards presented!
The 2pm screening features films written by K-8th grade students, and the 6pm screening features films written by 8th-12th grade students.
