The Black List

Where filmmakers & writers meet:The Black List is an unique online community where screenwriters make their work available to readers, buyers and employers. It has hosted more than 55,000 screenplays and teleplays and provided more than 85,000 script evaluations. As a direct result of introductions made on the Black List, dozens of writers have found representation at major talent agencies and management companies, as well as sold or optioned their screenplays. In only three years, a half dozen films have been produced from scripts introduced on the website 


The Blackhouse helps Black creative voices and executives gain a better foothold in the industry. We showcase the best-of-the-best in film and television and are committed to highlighting the power of Black writers, producers, directors, and executives telling our stories. Our goal is to continually change the way audiences think about Black movies and television and keep the conversation about Black storytelling going on-screen and off for years to come.
