Finalists Selected, With the Winner to be Announced on Monday, Oct. 30, 2017

The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation president John Goldwyn and vice president Tony Goldwyn announced on Tuesday, Sept. 19 that Kerry Washington, Channing Dungey and Chris Selak have been named judges for the 62nd annual Samuel Goldwyn Writing Awards, which recognizes excellence in dramatic writing. The awards are available exclusively to students at UCLA.

Actress, producer and activist Kerry Washington is currently starring in her Emmy-, Golden Globe- and Screen Actors Guild Awards-nominated role as Olivia Pope in the hit ABC drama Scandal. Her recent credits include the Emmy-nominated HBO movie Confirmation, in addition to the Academy Award-nominated films Django Unchained and Ray.

Channing Dungey is president of ABC Entertainment. She joined the Disney-ABC Television Group in 2004 after a successful career as a feature film executive and producer. Dungey is an alumna, Executive Board Member and Visiting Assistant Professor at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (UCLA TFT).

As Lionsgate’s Executive Vice President and Head of Worldwide Scripted Television, Chris Selak oversees creative development and programming for all of the company’s scripted television projects. She has helped assemble a prolific slate that includes Orange Is the New Black, Dear White People, The Royals, Manhunt: Unabomber and Casual.

The finalists of the 2017 Samuel Goldwyn Writing Awards are:

Liz Buda, Zero Hour
Godwin Itai Jabangwe, R.O.V.E.R.
Eric Mallory Morgan, Hole in the Sky
Joey Siara, Goslinged

Morgan won first-place honors in last year’s Goldwyn Writing Awards competition for his script Tonya.

“The Goldwyn family has been a great friend to the University of California,” stated Teri Schwartz, Dean of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. “They have contributed enormously to the education and development of our UCLA TFT students. We appreciate the Goldwyn family’s time, energy and unfailing enthusiasm for the success of our students and the next generation of storytellers. We are so very thankful for their commitment to continue the magnificent legacy of the Samuel Goldwyn Writing Awards, which began more than 60 years ago.”

Samuel Goldwyn, Sr. created the annual competition in 1955 at UCLA, which launched the careers of many talented young film, stage and television writers. Past winners include Francis Ford Coppola, Eric Roth and Jonathan Kellerman.

The $15,000 first prize, $7,500 second prize, $4,000 third prize and $1,000 honorable mention will be awarded on Monday, Oct. 30 at UCLA.

Professor Gina Kim wins VR award at the Venice International Film Festival

“Bloodless” is one of three films honored in the festival’s newest category

By Noela Hueso

Gina KimIn the inaugural year of the Venice International Film Festival’s virtual reality competition, a jury led by director John Landis has chosen the 12-minute film Bloodless as the winner in the Best VR Story category, written and directed by Department of Film, Television and Digital Media Professor Gina Kim.

Twenty-two films, in genres spanning from documentary to science fiction, were in competition and three prizes were handed out in the Venice Virtual Reality program. Director Eugene Y.K. Chung received the Best VR award for Arden’s Wake (Expanded); and directors Laurie Anderson and Hsin-Chien Huang won the Best VR Experience award for La Camera Insabbiata.

This is the first time that a major film festival has included VR in competition — an appreciable confirmation of the medium’s growing permanence in storytelling entertainment. Venice, touted as the oldest film festival in the world, was one of the first major festivals to show interest in the VR genre and in 2016 showcased VR projects in the brand-new VR Theatre at the Palazzo del Casino with seats that pivot 360 degrees.

Bloodless traces the last living moments of a real-life sex worker who was brutally murdered by a U.S. soldier at the Dongducheond camp town in South Korea in 1992. (“Comfort women” have been available to U.S. army soldiers stationed in South Korea since the 1950s.) Portraying the last hours of her life in the camp town, Bloodless transposes a historical and political issue into a personal and concrete experience. The film was shot on location where the crime took place, bringing to light ongoing experiences at the 96 camp towns near or around the U.S. military bases.

The 74th annual Venice International Film Festival, which took place August 30-Sept. 9, opened with a screening of alumnus Alexander Payne’s (M.F.A. ’90) Downsizing.

Alumnus Charles Burnett to be Honored With 2017 Governors Award

The L.A. Rebellion filmmaker is known for such films as “Killer of Sheep” and “To Sleep With Anger”

Charles BurnettAward-winning L.A. Rebellion filmmaker Charles Burnett (B.A. ’69, M.F.A. ’77) will be celebrated with an honorary Governors Award by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) during the 9th annual Governors Awards ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 11 at Hollywood & Highland Center.

Burnett, who is broadly recognized as a pioneering indie filmmaker, wrote, directed, produced and edited his first feature, Killer of Sheep (1977) when he was a graduate student at the UCLA College of Fine Arts, now the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. In 1990, Killer of Sheep was one of the first 50 films to be selected for the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry and was chosen by the National Society of Film Critics as one of the 100 Essential Films.

In 1988, he was awarded the prestigious John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellowship. Burnett’s first widely released film, To Sleep with Anger (1990), was also chosen for the National Film Registry, and he became the first African American recipient of the National Society of Film Critics’ best screenplay award.

Born in Mississippi and raised in Los Angeles’ Watts neighborhood, Burnett’s other credits include the features My Brother’s Wedding (1983), The Glass Shield (1994) and Namibia: The Struggle for Liberation (2007); the short films The Horse (1973) and When It Rains (1995); and the documentaries America Becoming (1991) and Nat Turner: A Troublesome Property (2003).

Other honorees at this year’s ceremony will be actor Donald Sutherland (M*A*S*H*, Ordinary People, The Hunger Games), Belgian writer-director Agnes Varda (Le Bonheur) and cinematographer Owen Roizman (Wyatt Earp, Tootsie, The French Connection).

According to the AMPAS website, the Honorary Award, an Oscar statuette, is given “to honor extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy.”

44th Telluride Film Festival

The annual Labor Day weekend festival features a bevy of high-profile films from UCLA TFT alumni

As the 44th edition of the Telluride Film Festival gets underway today in Telluride, Colo., UCLA TFT celebrates its alumni with films screening there. They include writer-director-producer Alexander Payne (M.F.A. ’90) with his social satire Downsizing, starring Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz and Kristin Wiig; writer-director Francis Ford Coppola (M.F.A. ’67), whose 1984 musical The Cotton Club, starring Richard Gere, Gregory Hines and Diane Lane, returns in a new cut entitled The Cotton Club Encore; writer-director Paul Schrader (M.A. ’70), who has the dramatic thriller First Reformed, starring Ethan Hawke and Amanda Seyfried; filmmakers Jonathan Dayton (B.A. ’80) and Valerie Faris, who bring the true story of the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs to the screen in Battle of the Sexes, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell; and Julio Ramos (M.F.A. ’12), who returns to the festival with his short film Debris. Ramos, whose first short film, ¡Una carrerita, Doctor! screened at the festival in 2011, was also a FilmLAB fellow that year. FilmLAB is UCLA TFT’s multi-faceted partnership with Telluride, created by Dean Teri Schwartz in conjunction with Telluride Film Festival co-director Julie Huntsinger, focused on the art and industry of filmmaking. It is custom-designed for select UCLA TFT graduate film students who are invited to attend the festival. While there, students learn from the greatest filmmakers in the world in a workshop/lab setting, enjoy exclusive sessions with world-renowned writers, producers and industry leaders, and experience the festival in a VIP fashion. UCLA TFT Executive board member Frank Marshall (B.A. ’68) was the symposium’s founding sponsor and continues to be a strong supporter.

This year, 10 M.F.A. students were invited to the festival. They include screenwriting students Cooper Abedin, Elizabeth Buda, Margaret Maloney and Guido Segal; Producers Program students Ceren Bulca and Griffith Rhys Jones; directing students Daniel Lafrentz, Ronak Shah and Brooks Stephanie Yang; and animation student Bijiao Liu.

The 44th edition of the Telluride Film Festival takes place Sept. 1-4, 2017.

    UCLA TFT donors give to the UCLA Chancellor’s Centennial Scholars Match Program

    By Noela Hueso

    As a way of inspiring others to give, in September 2016, UCLA Chancellor Gene Block launched the UCLA Chancellor’s Centennial Scholars Match program. Through June 30, 2017, qualifying gifts of $75,000 to $1 million given to undergraduate scholarships are matched by UCLA at 50 percent — and some generous, dedicated donors are meeting the challenge so that UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (UCLA TFT) students will benefit.

    The Rosemary Kraemer Raitt Foundation was founded in 2005 by the widow of actor John Raitt, a powerful baritone best known for his work in musical theater in such original Broadway productions as Carousel, Oklahoma! and The Pajama Game. The foundation is a steadfast contributor to the school and to meet the Scholar’s Match dedicated $400,000 to its annual scholarship for undergraduate students in the UCLA TFT Ray Bolger Musical Theater Program. Upon the last payment of the commitment, this amount will be matched with $200,000.

    Raitt, who passed away in December 2011, intended that the foundation would continue to increase its support of the school through the years and Raitt Foundation co-trustees John Kraemer (Raitt’s nephew) and Cheryl Hammond saw the Scholars Match opportunity as a perfect way to do so.

    “We took the match offer as the catalyst for following through on our intention and setting the time frame for being able to expand the fund,” says Kraemer. “We’re expanding greatly the size of the endowed scholarship fund. The goal is that it will eventually be over $1 million after the matching dollars come in.”

    Loyal UCLA TFT supporter Marianne Murphy, who was a theater major at the UCLA College of Fine Arts in the 1970s (now UCLA TFT), and an actor, producer and university instructor, has created her second scholarship for the school, the Marianne J. Murphy Endowed Scholarship Award. She has made a $75,000 commitment, to which the Centennial Scholars Match will contribute $37,500.

    Murphy established her first award, the Department of Theater’s Marianne Murphy Women and Philanthropy Award, to support playwriting students. This new award has an even broader scope.

    “I like the idea that it is going to be available schoolwide and that it will not only support writers but also encourage actors and directors, whether for stage or screen,” she says.

    According to Murphy, it’s the least she could do.

    “I learned a tremendous amount in my four years at UCLA,” she says. “I am forever grateful for the education I got there.”

    Those interested in making a contribution to the school should contact Frederick E.A. Bush, Assistant Dean, Development & Alumni Affairs, at fbush@tft.ucla.edu or (310) 206-5999.
