To this finish, this quantity addresses the elemental philosophical questions on the character of the screenplay: what's a screenplay? Is the screenplay art—more in particular, literature? what sort of something is a screenplay? Nannicelli argues that the screenplay is a type of artefact; as such, its obstacles are made up our minds jointly by means of screenwriters, and its ontological nature is set jointly by means of either writers and readers of screenplays.
