Unsure about exactly what makes these scripts so popular?

You're thinking about writing movie scripts? Do your research.

The odds are firmly against you making a career out of writing. Anyone can write, but not everyone can be a writer.

Screenwriting is like any other art: it's subjective. So is it worth paying for someone's opinion about your writing? A professional script reader can read your screenplay and hate everything about it. On the flip side, a different person can read the same script and love every word. The end result is you'll get conflicting advice about how to "improve" your writing, and their opinions may have nothing to do with the fundamentals of screenwriting.

That's the problem with subjectivity when an artist is looking for advice. Not everyone is the same, and not all script readers are created equally. The point is this: keep writing, keep revising until YOU are happy. If you've got what it takes to be a writer, to be a good writer, then everything else will fall into place.

Read screenplays. Read a lot of screenplays. Read unproduced screenplays, read award-winning screenplays. Discover what's not written on the page; look beyond what's black and white. Don't be afraid to make a mistake, but also know when to say when.

Anyone can write, but not everyone can be a writer.

A word about voting... and other important stuff about the "best of" 2022 Unproduced Scripts.

Some of the scripts listed here may have since been optioned and produced. However, at the time of "voting" they were not.

Also, like all of the screenplays on this site, copyrights remain with the writer(s). 8FLiX does not claim ownership of any screenplay, nor were we involved in voting for, or choosing what makes them the "best of" a particular year.

If you're the writer and wish to update the version, change your contact information, or to remove your screenplay from the database, send an email to Nick Runyeard for immediate assistance. I can also be reach through social media:
