CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Kids got a chance to see to see their words come to life on the big screen.
The Pens to Lens Gala was at the Virginia Theater. Students kindergarten to 12th grade could submit their own original screenplays.
Professional filmmakers then chose their favorites and produced the films. This year, 19 short films were shown. Four of the 19 were written and made completely by kids.
