Four Columbia Alumni on The 2014 Black List
The screenplays of four Columbia Film alumni have been selected for the prestigious 2014 Black List. The Black List began in 2005 as a survey of film executives about their favorite scripts which hadn't been turned into features. Since then, over 225 Black List screenplays have been made into feature films.
