About This Event

Are you a local teen who loves movies? Learn how to write a screenplay with Film Columbus and Columbus College of Art & Design!

The 2024 Film Columbus Teen Screenwriting Competition is a FREE, two-part screenwriting workshop for teens ages 13-18 with CCAD’s Chair of Film & Video Kingsley Nyarko. The workshops and competition are FREE for teens in Franklin, Delaware, Licking, Fairfield, Pickaway, Madison and Union counties.

The first workshop covers the basics, from plot to protagonists, followed by a big homework assignment: writing a screenplay.

The second workshop gives students a chance to receive feedback on their work and hear from their peers and the instructor.

After the workshops, students are encouraged to submit a 5-7 page script. Industry professionals will judge the scripts and select 2-3 winners, whose screenplays will be made into short films by CCAD students. These films will premiere publicly, and you’ll be invited!

Teens will have flexibility in attending the workshops. Students are required to attend two sessions in order to submit a script and enter the competition. Each session has two open time slots.

*** For session one, teens can attend either Saturday, April 13, from 10:00 am-1:00 pm or Saturday, April 20, from 1:00-4:00 pm.

*** For session two, teens can select from Saturday, April 27, from 10:00 am-1:00 pm or Saturday, May 4, from 1:00-4:00 pm.

Locations for the workshops are conveniently located downtown at the CCAD campus and close to buslines. Registration is required to attend and to enter the competition.
