Pens to Pictures is an intensive “writing movies” workshop created and led by filmmaker Chinonye Chukwu with its own radical story—to be explored at our forthcoming Director’s Dialogue. For 10 Girls/10 Weeks, Chukwu is adapting her college-level program to create a small-group workshop designed for younger aspiring writers and filmmakers ages 12–18.
Each participant in 10 Girls/10 Weeks will complete a script for a short film, enjoy local research trips, meet professionals in the field, analyze films together, and engage in lots of writing and editing. The workshop will culminate in a reception that features readings of the new scripts by a professional local actor.
Interviews for 10 Girls/10 Weeks are scheduled the week of August 28, 2017. The 10 finalists will be notified on September 4. Columbus-area middle and high school students are strongly encouraged to apply. For more information or to request an application please contact Jean Pitman at (614) 292-4614 or email@example.com. Applications are due by 5 PM on August 14th.
