Welcome to Diversity in Cinema Academy's Script Library!

Our script library is a curated list of free screenplays and teleplays that exemplifies the storytelling of diverse character-driven stories. It also showcases the stories of different cultures from the perspectives of BIPOC, women, and LGBTQ+ members.


We created this script library because we found that marginalized and underserved filmmakers were having difficulty finding free screenplays that represented their voices. We wanted to make the search easier for them by curating this ever-growing list of free screenplays.


Whether you are an emerging screenwriter or a professional, this site is for you. The critical component of understanding the art of writing a compelling screenplay is to read screenplays and educate yourself. Take the time to breakdown and analyze these scripts. Analyzing a screenplay's structure, character, plot, dialogue, action, and themes are invaluable tools in any stage of writing. Learning from some of the best scripts made to-date can improve your writing or even springboard new innovative ideas within your writing.


In short, our script library is a forum to utilize, enjoy, learn, and discover. So, get yo reading on!!!
