Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards Announce Winners

Independent Pictures (IP) has announced the three award- winning screenplays for the 2003 Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards, IP's seventh annual script competition. This marks the second year for the organization's Best Voice of Color Award, which highlights the writing achievements from a screenwriter whose voice, story and characters speak to generally marginalized audiences.

Winner of the Best Voice of Color Screenplay: THE SHANGRI-LA CAFE by Lily Mariye. The Takashi family owns a restaurant in 1959 Las Vegas and are forced to adopt a "whites only" policy during a time when blacks cannot eat in "whites only" establishments and many Japanese Americans to pretend to be Chinese to avoid post WWII racism.

A favorite for screenplay submitters and judges alike, the Best Northcoast Screenplay Award focuses on stories that are set in Northern Ohio. Winner of the Best Northcoast Screenplay: THE BOARDER by Jane E. Ryan. A loving, unprepared couple adopts a slick, street kid who is not what he seems-he terrorizes his mother and totally buffaloes his father. Finally, the Best Screenplay Award goes to the most overall well- written and crafted story. Winner of the Best Screenplay: THREE MILE FAMILY by Spiro Skentzos. During the 1979 Three-Mile Island nuclear meltdown, a daughter and son each explore their sexuality, leaving their immigrant tyrannical father and sexually repressed mother to realize they have lost control over them.
