The Party We Could Have was written as part of Temple University's Creative Screenwriting course in Klein College of Media and Communication's Media Studies & Production program in the Fall of 2019. In the Spring of 2020 it was added to the open script database for Producing and Directing undergrad and graduate cohorts to adapt as a narrative feature or short film.

In the spirit of openness and supporting accessible creative works, the original screenplay has been made available via by CC BY-SA 2.0 License (additional mirror here.)

In Spring 2020 the film was adapted by a Temple University Producing and Directing cohort as The Party We Could've Had before production was halted due to Covid-19.
