American Film Scripts Online
American Film Scripts Online contains more than 1,000 scripts with detailed, fielded information on the scenes, characters and people related to the scripts. The primary focus of the database is the written work, rather than the film itself.  It allows users to see and understand the structure of films, character development, beginnings and endings, plot points and scenes

Most of the scripts have never been published before, and nowhere else are they available online. The scripts within AFSO have been chosen by the following criteria:

  • The film or screenplay won a major award or was critically acclaimed
  • The screenplay has historical or sociological significance, for example, the writer was expressing a minority viewpoint or if a film is particularly representative of a movement, a time period or a minority group.
