COVID-19 Travel Alerts

Capitalizing on Columbus’ strengths as a forward-thinking city, we continue to “Live Forward” to help rebuild Columbus’ economy and support the local community during the COVID-19 crisis. Though many events have been cancelled, Ohio has slowly begun the process to reopen doctor’s offices, retail shops, restaurants and bars, salons and general businesses if the proper guidelines are followed. Attractions throughout Columbus remain closed and the Governor has continued the stay-at-home order with those business exceptions.

A global pandemic has moved our Theatre Roulette Short Play Festival to this Winter, but we aren’t letting that stop us from creating art this Spring! We’d like to invite you to participate in our Blackjack Short Video Festival! We will curate a selection of our 21 favorite videos to be the first ever digital production MadLab has produced. 


You do not need to be a film creator to participate, we are not expecting any fancy equipment here. Get creative, work with what you have, make something special from nothing - it’s the MadLab way.
