‘Georgie’ garners top Fade In script nod

Categories include laffer, thriller, action, noir, shorts

Fade In magazine has picked the finalists for its sixth annual Fade In Screenwriting Awards.

Kathy Garcia of Santa Monica took the grand prize for her dramedy “Georgie,” about a popular high school student accused of being a lesbian. The script is being shopped to agents and producers.

Finalists in the drama category were Richard Harris (“Silicon Prairie”), Natt Moss and Alfredo de Villa (“Little Angel”) and Kat Smith (“El Paso”).

“Soulmates” scribes Elaura Niles and Mark Renie took the nods in the comedy category.

Kaenen Oliver, Dominic Oliver & Jay Flynn (“New Breed, Old Glory”) and Brian Tuohy (“The Reckoning”) were action finalists, while Philip Pierce (“A-Life”) and Tiffany Borders and John Plunkett (“Can You Keep a Secret?”) took the thriller nod, and Maurice Billington (“9”) was the finalist in the film noir category.

Bill Flannigan (“The Shortcut”), Josh Greenberg (“Happytime Lane”) and Michael Chuckerman and Christopher White (“Quiet”) were finalists in the shorts category.

Approximately 2,000 entrants competed in five categories (drama, comedy, action, thriller and noir) and two formats (short and long form).

The awards were established in 1996 to assist talented writers and directors in getting recognition from the established Hollywood community.

Information on the seventh installment of the contest is available at www.fadeinonline.com.
