What is The Red List?
Coverfly is the industry's largest database of screenplay contest entries and script coverage evaluations, sortable by genre and format, and searchable by vetted entertainment industry professionals. We connect data from many of the industry's top screenwriting competitions and screenplay coverage sites. The Red List is a list of the screenplays with the highest Coverfly Scores.
If your project's Coverfly Score is high enough, and you have opted to make the project "public" via your Coverfly dashboard, then it will show up on The Red List. Be sure to explore The Red List by genre and format.
The Coverfly Score is updated within a few days of receiving an evaluation on the project. The Red List can take up to 10 minutes to show an updated Coverfly Score.
