Event Details

The Black List expanded our Happy Hours for one primary reason: to create social hubs for writers around the world where they can meet other screenwriters and discuss the craft and the reality of the screenwriter’s life. Free hosting coupons to try out the Black List for a month and post your work will be available so ask an organizer for more information.

Come join your fellow writers, directors, actors, producers and entertainment professionals at our Philly happy hour! Come to enjoy the drinks and the company. You never know who you might meet!

The event is free and open to the public, so spread the word to your writer friends but be sure to RSVP on Eventbrite. The Black List hosts happy hours on the first Wednesday of every month from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at Cavanaugh’s Headhouse Square.

If you have any questions at all, please contact

The Black List
Organizer of Black List Philadelphia Happy Hour
The Black List, an annual survey of Hollywood executives’ favorite unproduced screenplays, was founded in 2005. Since then, more than 319 Black List scripts have been produced, grossing over $26 billion in box office worldwide. Black List movies have won 51 Academy Awards from 264 nominations, including four of the last nine Best Picture Oscars and ten of the last twenty 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 40,000 screenplays and teleplays and provided more than 65,000 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. In only three years, a half dozen films have been produced from scripts introduced on the website including Golden Globe nominated NIGHTINGALE, starring Dave Oyelowo.

Currently, the Black List hosts over 2,600 scripts for consideration by over 3,500 film industry professionals ranging from agency assistants, to studio and network presidents, to A-list actors and directors.
