Livestream, schedule, programming – Deadline

Deadline’s Signature Contenders event has come a long way since its launch over a decade ago. Designed then – and now – as a sort of one-stop-shop for industry awards voters, it’s packed with clips and interviews to give a good idea of ​​which movies to watch before you vote. It started as an idea and has now grown into a tradition. After a few years of focusing solely on the Oscar season in Los Angeles, our Contenders brand expanded to London and then New York as well. We also launched a hugely popular Contenders TV event, and just two weeks ago we launched the Contenders International and Contenders Documentary spin-offs.

Today we’re back where it all began with Contenders Film, but bigger than ever with 49 films from 16 more studios and distributors, and an extremely impressive lineup of talent with 150 speakers over the weekend. The event kicks off this morning at 8 a.m. PT. Click here to register and join the livestream, and follow all weekend on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram via @Deadline and #DeadlineContenders.

The Contenders Documentary & International: full coverage

See the full panel schedule for today and Sunday below.

For obvious health and safety reasons, and following the gathering guidelines set by the CDC, our big Contenders Film event goes virtual, having managed to do so starting with Contenders TV in the spring. This strengthened the global reach of the event, and while we missed seeing everyone in person, it was thrilling to include stars and filmmakers from around the world as they talk about their films and share stories. internal stories about getting them to the screen.

The film industry has certainly been affected by this pandemic, especially with the shutting down of cinemas in many parts of the world, which in turn has affected the way we watch these films, making this season a season unlike any other. others. While many films originally slated to be contenders for this awards season have moved on to next year and beyond, the quantity and, thankfully, the quality of those you’ll see on display during our Contenders Movie Weekend. 2021 is proof of a remarkably resilient industry.

What’s more, what’s interesting is that so many of the films available, although designed and shot before the pandemic took hold, are so ironically relevant in light of the closure of the normal life and the way we live now. Call it life-mimicking art, but the need for human connection is real, and that’s why, in our own way, we carry on the tradition of Contenders – to keep us collectively connected to one thing we all have in common. : our love for movies.
