This year they celebrated their 50th anniversary and Mark was in attendance as his screenplay ‘Cyborn’ was in the finals and nominated for ‘Best Comedy Feature.’ He mingled with the stars in the VIP room, watched some amazing films and was pleasantly surprised when a team of actors performed a scene from Cyborn in a table read as part of the screenplay awards.
