What's your favorite screenplay of 2018?
In 2018, we decided to overhaul how No Film School approaches screenwriting.
That meant putting a focus on how the creators who visited our website could turn their ideas into scripts they could shoot and edit. We're excited to provide examples of some of the best screenplays in 2018 to our readers, so they can learn structure, conflict, protagonists, antagonists, and follow their dreams. Even join a free screenwriting seminar!
Each screenplay title is hyperlinked to a downloadable PDF of the feature. Some of the Netflix entries have links that went down, but we are hoping they go back up soon.
Enjoy the read!
