Kudo to be presented April 30

Milk” scribe Dustin Lance Black is the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television’s latest recipient of the Lew and Pamela Hunter/Jonathan and Janice Zakin chair holder in screenwriting Award.

Kudo will be given on April 30 at UCLA’s James Bridges Theater. The event will include a screening of “Milk,” for which Black won an original screenwriting Oscar, and a Q&A with Black.

The award requires that the recipient teach a 10-week screenwriting seminar at UCLA. Black did so last fall.

Past Hunter/Zakin award recipients include Don Payne, Ed Solomon, Caroline Williams, Felicia D. Henderson and Sacha Gervasi.
