Pens to Pictures

Pens to Pictures

Created by Chinonye Chukwu, Pens to Pictures is a filmmaking collaborative that teaches and empowers incarcerated women to make their own short films, from script to screen. During its inaugural year in 2016, five films were made in partnership between women in Dayton Correctional Institution (DCI) and the Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Pennsylvania artist communities. Films screened in prisons, community spaces, schools, libraries, festivals and beyond throughout 2017. The second cycle of film productions will begin with a new group of participants later this year. To learn more about the program and/or to co-organize a screening event, visit:
