Submissions for the 2019 Pens to Lens Student Screenwriting Competition are now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted, and keep an eye out for the screening lineup announcement this summer, as well as tickets for the Gala in August!

We are still accepting student-produced short films for the Student Filmmaking Competition!  You can get details on that here, and when you’re ready to submit your film you can do so here.  We will be accepting student film entries through June 30th!

If you are interested in getting involved with the production of this year’s films and posters, check out this page and see what might apply to you, and if you’re interested in being considered for an onscreen role in one of the films, you can set up an actor profile on Champaign Casting Call.

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.
