Brit List

Posted in lists by westsideninja on October 2, 2009

like the Black List of most liked scripts…but for Brits.

 

 

THE BRIT LIST 2009 Welcome to this year’s Brit List, the UK’s complement to the marvellous US Blacklist.

As in previous years, the UK and Irish film community has complied a list of their most liked and recommended unproduced screenplays. Over 40 film industry people across all levels of seniority and sectors have taken part in voting. Over 150 different screenplays received nominations, of which 34 listed below received 2 or more votes.

In order to qualify for the Brit List, a screenplay had to:

a) be unproduced (not shooting at the time of the list’s circulation)

b) be written by any writer who is non US (by birth)

c) have at least 2 votes; and

d) not have featured on previous Brit Lists.

Where known, producers have been named alongside the screenplays.

Every effort has been made to supply accurate information, and apologies are made for any inaccuracies or misspellings.
