The Champaign Park District is proud to welcome back the Champaign-Urbana Film Society, Champaign Movie Makers, and the Champaign-Urbana Design Organization as they present this unique program for East Central Illinois K-12 students.
In Pens to Lens, children write original screenplays which are then made into short films by local filmmakers. Area graphic designers and illustrators also create original movie posters for the program.
The whole community is invited to come out and watch the finished films, walk the red carpet, and celebrate some very creative student screenwriters!
A project of the CU Film Society
