Script Selection In Progress!

Submissions for the 2015 Pens to Lens competition have closed; filmmakers and designers are reading through the entries, and selecting which scripts they would like to bring to life! Keep an eye on this site and on our Facebook page to catch updates about the screening this summer!

From your head to the big screen

The Champaign Urbana Film Society invites K-12 students in East Central Illinois to submit original screenplays to the Pens To Lens Screenwriting Competition. Student screenplays will be made into actual short films and movie posters by the local art community. On screening gala night, the whole community is invited to see these finished films and celebrate student writing with awards and other surprises!
