Join us for the first Black List Live! event: a series of exclusive, one night only staged screenplay readings at the opulent Los Angeles Theatre. We kick off at the LA Film Fest with a reading of Stephany Folsom's 2013 Black List script "1969: A Space Odyssey, or How Kubrick Learned to Stop Worrying and Land on the Moon" about a White House public affairs assistant who convinces Stanley Kubrick to fake the moon landing, just in case something goes wrong during that one small step. Seeing is believing!

When & Where
The Black List
The Black List, an annual survey of Hollywood executives' favorite unproduced screenplays, was founded in 2005. Since then, more than 270 Black List scripts have been produced, grossing over $24 billion in box office worldwide. Black List movies have won 37 Academy Awards, including three of the last six Best Picture Oscars and eight of the last fourteen Best Screenplay Oscars.
In October of 2012, the Black List launched a unique online community where screenwriters make their work available to readers, buyers and employers. Since its inception, it has hosted more than 20,000 screenplays and teleplays and provided more than 32,000 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.
Currently, the Black List hosts over 2,600 scripts for consideration by over 2,400 film industry professionals ranging from agency assistants, to studio and network presidents, to A-list actors and directors.
