About Ten Minute Screenplays

Welcome to Ten Minute Screenplays. We're building a global creative community, where anyone can download free, original screenplays to help kickstart their projects. With a maximum runtime of ten minutes, our screenplays are the perfect jumping-off point for students, filmmakers, and other writers. 

The best part — in addition to our screenplays being free and original — is that anybody can get involved. It doesn't matter whether you're an experienced screenwriter, or you've never written a story before in your life; all ideas are welcome. 

Ten Minute Screenplays is not a place to dump your D-grade material, but an opportunity to have your ideas seen and used by other creatives in the real world. By using or adapting one of our screenplays, you're paying somebody a huge compliment, and by submitting one, you're helping to make the world a more creative place. 

Head to the homepage to begin exploring the screenplays, or use the button below to submit your own idea, and start collaborating.
