Once again, San Jose State students have achieved national recognition for screenwriting excellence.
Lauren Serpa, who received her BA in RTVF from San Jose State and is currently an SJSU MFA Creative Writing student, won second place at the Broadcast Education Association Festival of Media Arts in the feature-length screenplay category for Where We Start.
The BEA is the nation’s largest organization of RTVF programs and their Festival of Media Arts is the nation’s most important student film competition.
In the same category, recent RTVF grad Risha Rose received an Honorable Mention for her screenplay Dance With Me.
In the Short Screenplay category, two SJSU students received Honorable Mentions: Rachel Compton for Prosopagnosia and Kevin Briot for When a Giant Falls.
Congratulations to the faculty in RTVF, Theatre Arts, and English who mentored these exceptional students who have brought us glory, and of course to the students themselves!
