The 2020 CAPE List
In May 2019, as Deadline reported, The Black List partnered with CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment) to create the very first CAPE List for feature screenplays.
This March, we've partnered CAPE once again to create a call for submissions for the 2020 CAPE List, which will include 10 feature screenplays and 10 original pilots. 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.
Filmmakers and content creators are invited to submit a script for consideration by uploading it to The Black List website during the month of March 2020. Submissions will be accepted until April 3, 2020. Original feature screenplays, one-hour pilots, and half-hour pilots will be considered for this opportunity (no webseries, please.)
Writers selected for the 2020 CAPE List will be notified of their placement in Spring 2020, with a public announcement to follow.
