Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards Announce Finalists and Semifinalists

The longest running screenplay competition in Ohio keeps growing with every year. Our pool of submissions has been slowly whittled down to 14; finalists and semi-finalists. Over 70 readers across three states took part in reading and judging the preliminary round of entries for the 2003 Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards. All entrants may receive feedback from reader evaluations as a way to improve their work. The next step is screenplay scrutiny of the finalists from our panel of industry professionals; film producers Jane Alsobrook, TC Rice, and Dawn Wolfrom.

In addition to her producing work, Ms. Alsobrook has been a senior VP at Columbia Pictures and the president of Australia's largest independent film production and distribution company. Mr. Rice is VP Distribution for Manhattan Pictures Intl., a distribution and production company founded by Paul E. Cohen; he has also worked with Stephen Baldwin's Next Millennium Entertainment and Stratosphere Entertainment. In addition to her work producing films (recently NEVER AGAIN released by USA Films July 2002), Ms. Wolfrom has also moved into television, having sold shows to Paramount with Kelsey Grammer's company Gramnet. 2003 marks the second year for the Best Voice of Color Award, which highlights the writing achievements from a screenwriter whose voice, story and characters speak to generally marginalized audiences.
