As black and white images of old Hollywood flickered on the wall at Cinespace Hollywood, new Hollywood met to judge our screenplay contest late last week. If you’ve seen Jon Favreau’s Dinner With Five — this was better. Wine flowed, spinach dip disappeared, and the debate was lively… As I listened, I realized how lucky this contest and its entrants are to have such a great industry group to support us. They volunteered their time for the aspiring writer… and, I’m guessing, for themselves… Because at one point, they were just starting out too… a crazy dream… that doesn’t seem so crazy now. Thanks again to all of our amazing judges. Read to the bottom for our overall winner.
