What is "The Black List"
It may not mean what you think it means.
8FLiX.com visitors are nearly evenly split between screenwriters and fans of great TV and movies. So, for some, The Blacklist could mean the TV series starring James Spader. Or it could also mean the so-called Hollywood blacklist that existed throughout the 1940s and 50s.
What we're talking about here is more of an ironic List.
For a new writer, "The Black List" is a invaluable resource. And if you're a screenwriter, you want to be on this black list.
The Black List: Explained
Who better to explain, than the founder himself, Franklin Leonard.
Since 2005, each December, the Black List releases its annual list, a survey of the most liked unproduced screenplays of that year. The annual lists are aggregated using votes from film executives working in the film industry.blklst.com

Here's What We Have For You
8FLiX keeps an archive of thousands of screenplays that make the annual Black List. Keep in mind, though, we're still building the archives. So there may be some years missing. But, over the next several months, we'll have nearly 99% of all Black List screenplays available to read and download, free, whenever you want.
Some of the movies may sound familiar to you. That may be because, over the years, several dozen Black List screenplays were optioned and produced. "The Adam Project," "Argo," and "King Richard" are just a few of the chosen ones.
Just one more thing:
We should also note that 8FLiX is not affiliated with any studio or "The Black List." So, from time to time we will remove screenplays from the archive when we're asked to do so.
That being said, if you're a writer, or the distributor, and want us to remove a script then please contact us. You can also contact Nick Runyeard directly through IMDb Pro Contacts for a more immediate and personal response without the paperwork.
