Five students from UC campuses have been chosen as finalists for the 2009 Samuel Goldwyn Writing Awards Competition.
After receiving more than 150 submissions, the Samuel Goldwyn Foundation has narrowed the field down to five feature-length screenplays. The finalists for the award are Jennifer Barclay from UCSD and Rob Kotecki, Eli Mael, Bradford Schmidt and Joseph Tremba, all from UCLA.
All finalists will receive cash prizes, with $15,000 for the first place winner. Winners will be selected by Hilary Swank, Colin Callender and Catherine Tarr, and awards will be presented Nov. 2 at UCLA.
Previous award winners include Francis Ford Coppola and Eric Roth.
