For the second year in a row, The Black List has partnered with IllumiNative and Sundance Institute for the Indigenous List. The Indigenous List will feature film and television scripts authored by Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Alaskan Native Film artists working in the U.S.
Filmmakers and content creators are invited to submit a script for consideration by uploading it to The Black List website during the winter of 2021/2022. Submissions will be accepted until February 4, 2022. Feature film, one-hour, and half-hour original pilot submissions will be considered for this opportunity (no webseries or documentaries, please.) Scripts from any genre are eligible for this partnership.
Writers selected for the Indigenous List will be notified of their placement in spring 2022, with a public announcement to follow.
