DELLWOOD a Diamond Award Winner at California Film Awards

Jonathan LaPoma’s feature-length coming-of-age drama DELLWOOD is a finalist in the Diamond Award category of the 2015 California Film Awards. DELLWOOD follows a successful, but unhappy, novelist who reluctantly returns to his childhood town to attend a friend’s funeral. While there, he reminisces about his experiences as a child playing basketball on a city court to escape from emotional abuse, and he understands himself and the theme of his next project more clearly. DELLWOOD can be described as STAND BY ME meets THE BASKETBALL DIARIES, and it’s the 7th ranked Urban screenplay in’s Top 10 Contest Winning Scripts section.
