by ScreenCraft - updated on May 27, 2022

One of the best ways to learn to write a screenplay is to read great screenplays. Below are links to 22 scripts available to download so far from this 2016 awards season.

Also, ScreenCraft recently sponsored some not-to-miss awards season podcast episodes with writers of MISS SLOANE and ARRIVAL. Seriously, you might learn more useful industry wisdom in these two podcast episodes than you would in a whole year of film school. Also, we interviewed literary manager Scott Carr about his client's swift success.

These scripts are all free and legal to download and share:
