It’s finally 2018, and that means that this year’s Pens to Lens Student Screenwriting Competition is right around the corner! Starting February 1st – and throughout the entire month of February – we’ll begin accepting short screenplay submissions from K-12 students throughout East Central Illinois.

Be sure to check out our Resources page for loads of resources on screenwriting for students, parents, and teachers. You can also see all of the past films by going to the “Films” tab in the upper right corner of this page.

We’ll have more announcements about the screenwriting competition in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
