The Brit List 2010 was officially unveiled today. Compiled by those working in the UK and Irish film community, the Brit List is a selection of the most liked and recommended unproduced screenplays. The idea of assembling such a list originated from the U.S., where their misleadingly named Black List is now a sought after honour for writers, and a valued mechanism for promoting films ahead of their release.
