The Brit List, the UK’s leading platform for British writing talent and their unproduced screenplays, has announced its 2020 line up.
The Brit List is a showcase for the best of British screenwriting compiled from recommendations by British production companies, talent agencies, sales companies, financiers, distributors and broadcasters.
Following a successful collaboration last year, Red Arrow Studios International, in association with Kinetic Content, is once again the headline sponsor for this year’s Brit List. Additionally, Final Draft, ScreenSkills, Silver Reel and FDA have also given their support as sponsors.
In a change from previous years, and to reflect that writers increasingly work across both film and television, participants were invited to put forward scripts in both forms.
An unprecedented number of companies took part and the bar for inclusion has moved higher than ever before, with scripts needing a minimum of 6 recommendations for consideration. Of 246 scripts put forward, 14 have been selected for The Brit List 2020.
This year, The Brit List features more female writers than ever before. 52% of the list are scripts by female writers. This trend continues with 29% of writers coming from diverse backgrounds.
