Dustin Lance Black Receives UCLA Screenwriting Award

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.

Black, a UCLA alum, has won two WGA Awards: one for “Milk” and another for HBO’s “Big Love.”

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