The 2021 CAPE List
For the last two years, The Black List partnered with CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment) to create the first two CAPE Lists. This year, we’re creating the third installment of the CAPE List along with some new partners for 2021!
This May, we've partnered with CAPE once again to create a call for submissions for the 2021 CAPE List, which will highlight 10 feature screenplays. Selected scripts will include a protagonist with Asian and/or Pacific Islander heritage, and must include authentic, accurate and inclusive Asian and Pacific Islander representation that if removed, it would significantly alter or affect the story.
For the first time in its three year history, CAPE List writers will additionally be read by executives and industry professionals at A Major, Annapurna, Lord Miller, and M88, and have the option to take a general meeting with an executive at each of those companies.
Filmmakers and content creators are invited to submit a script for consideration by uploading it to The Black List website between May 12, 2021-July 16, 2021. Only original feature screenplays will be considered for this opportunity.
Writers selected for the 2021 CAPE List will be notified of their placement in late Summer 2021, with a public announcement to follow.
