The Making Of Our Big May Event

See a few vignettes, celebrate great Columbia U. screenwriting, eat, drink - and network with alums to further your own career in the entertainment business. That was our idea more than a year ago for Columbia University Entertainment’s CUE Screenwriting Showcase, and we’d like you to enjoy it when it finally gets here on Wednesday May 8, 2013, 7:30-10pm at United Talent Agency, 9336 Civic Center Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. Click to RSVP.

We opened the contest last spring, did a lot of summer and fall reading and announced the five winners in November: “All In” - a TV drama by Abdi Nazemian (CC ‘98), “Back in Black” - a feature comedy by Jon Stahl (Teachers College ‘00), “Below Sunset” - a TV drama by Jonathon Roessler (FIlm ‘07), “Esquinado” - a feature drama by Jessiline Berry (Film ‘07) and “In House” - a TV drama by Daria Polatin (Theater ‘07).

Since then we’ve worked with the screenwriters to narrow down an illustrative 10-minute excerpt from each, and we’ve recruited Columbia alums in entertainment to direct and act for the staged readings you’ll see. (The reception follows so you can mingle and network with fellow alums in entertainment as well as invited industry guests.)
