Spain’s writers’ guild ALMA Sindicato de Guionistas as of today has become officially partnered with The Black List, marking the second non English-language writers’ org after Italy’s Writers Guild Italia whose members’ scripts will have the opportunity to appear on the prestigious Hollywood-based online scripts database.
The agreement, which will open up new avenues for Spanish scribes, follows similar partnerships The Black List has with the Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW), the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE), the Writers Guild of Great Britain (WGGB), the Writers Guild of Canada (WGC), and The Writers Guild of Ireland (WGIR).
All ALMA members will now be able to list their scripts online in The Black List, adding their script titles, loglines, tags, and representative information, and also monitor their work’s ratings and user traffic.
They will also receive a 20% discount on all Black List paid services, which are script hosting and evaluations.
The partnership was brokered by Italian writer-producer David Bellini, president of Los Angeles-based Elsewhere Works, a rapidly growing literary/talent agency that promotes non-American writers and directors on the U.S. market and also American writers and directors in the rest of the world.
The Elsewhere Works stable includes hot Spanish helmer Manuel Martin Cuenca (“Cannibal”) and scribe Curro Royo (“The Art of Dying”).
