pens to lens squareOver the month of February, over 100 student scripts were written and submitted! These submissions are being reviewed by writing judges, designers, and filmmakers. The writing judges will choose awards, the designers will make movie posters and character sketches based on chosen screenplays, and the filmmakers will choose screenplays to produce into actual short films.

The doors will open at the Art Theater at 6:00 PM for students to walk the red carpet, and for attendees to save seats and view the movie posters inspired by student screenplays which have been created by members of the Champaign Urbana Design Organization. The two hour awards and screening ceremony will start promptly at 7:00 PM. A one hour encore screening of the films will begin at 9:30 PM. If you are not related to a participating student, we strongly recommend that you plan to attend the encore screening.

This event is free to the public. It is expected to be very popular, so plan to arrive early to get a seat. Students with scripts that have been made into films may request reserved seats for themselves and their guests by emailing moc.snelotsnepnull@ofni.
