The following is a list of works that were published, performed or distributed posthumously (after the parties involved in its creation died).



Films whose director died before the release[edit]

Films whose screenwriter died before the release[edit]

Films whose actor/actress died before the release[edit]

In several cases, actors or actresses have died prior to the release of a film: either during filming or after it has been completed, but is yet to be released. In the case that the actor dies during filming, their scenes are often completed by stunt doubles, or through special effects. Only people who actually appear in some capacity in a posthumously released film are listed here. Those who were scheduled to start a project, but died before filming began, are not included.




Note: Records released after the split of a band are also sometimes referred as "posthumous", even if all members are still alive.
