Two alumni were recognized in the Academy Nicholl Competition. Rosaia Shepard was a semifinalist with The City of N.O. and Andrew Olson was a quarterfinalist with The Bubblegum Killer.
In 2013, alumna Hannah Feller‘s screenplay, War Love, made it to the semifinals of both the Academy Nicholls Competition and the Austin Film Festival. Hannah has taken The Screenplay Workshop six times and has six scripts to show for it — and a Hollywood manager! You may recall our previous announcement that another of her scripts, The Money Flight, had been optioned.
Given out by the Oscars organization, the Nicholl Fellowship is — hands down — the most prestigious screenplay competition that there is.
