Thru the Lens competition will have two categories. There will be a category for middle school through high school students and a separate category for all ages. The winners will be announced in May and one of the top prizes is the opportunity to make your film from your screenplay and see it up on the silver screen at the Del Oro Theatre’s Red Carpet Gala in October.

The deadline for Thru the Lens 2018 has been extended to Friday, April 6. There is still time for creative and inspired Nevada County residents to capture their muse and write a screenplay for this amazing fundraiser for Nevada County Television.

Thru the Lens has two categories. There is a "5 Minute Flick" category for middle school through high school and a "General" category for all ages. The "General" category is a 10-page/10-minute screenplay; whereas "5 Minute Flicks" are only five page scripts.

Winners are announced in May, and the prizes include the opportunity to make a film from your winning screenplay and see it debut on the silver screen at the Del Oro Theatre's Red Carpet Gala in October.
