Contest News

Virginia Film Office Announces 2006 Contest Winners

The Virginia Film Office has announced the three winners of the thirteenth Governor's Screenwriting Competition. They are Heather Cochrane from Batesville, J. Allan Moyé from Staunton and Steven Zawacki from Charlottesville. The Governor’s Screenwriting Competition was created to celebrate the accomplishments of Virginia writers, as well as to promote the future of filmmaking in Virginia. It provides screenwriters with a forum for their work and an opportunity to present their scripts to decision-makers in the film industry. Each writer submits a full-length screenplay to be evaluated by a panel of Virginia judges. Final scripts from the first round of judging are then sent to a second panel comprised of active professionals in the film or television industry.

Seventy-four screenplays were submitted to the competition and twelve finalists were selected to go to the second round of judging. In addition to the winners, the finalists were Jeff Bridgeman (Falls Church), Eric Carlson (Williamsburg), Tamar Datan (Lovettsville), Marshall S. Ferrin (Herndon), Kathryn Kuhlen (Alexandria), Arturo G. Munoz (Herndon), Scott R. Norris (Charlottesville), Kevin Spielman (Ashburn) and George V. Wills (Blacksburg).

The Governor’s Screenwriting Competition is held annually and is open to Virginia residents. The majority of the script must take place in Virginia or at locations which could reasonably be found in Virginia. For further information on the competition, contact the Film Office at (800) 854-6233 or visit the Film Office website at www.film.virginia.org.
