Livestream, Schedule, Lineup – Deadline

Deadline’s signature Contenders event has come a long way since it started over a decade ago. Designed then—and now—as a kind of one-stop shop for industry awards voters, it is packed with clips and interviews to provide a good idea of which movies should be seen before casting a ballot. It started as an idea, and now has grown into a tradition. After a few years of focusing just on Oscar season in Los Angeles, our Contenders brand expanded to London, and then to New York as well. We also initiated an extremely popular Contenders TV event, and just two weeks ago, we launched spinoffs Contenders International and Contenders Documentary.

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

The Contenders Documentary & International: Complete Coverage

See the full schedule of panels for both today and Sunday below.

Due to obvious health and safety reasons, and following guidelines about gatherings set by the CDC, our big Contenders Film event is going virtual, after success doing so starting with Contenders TV in the spring. It has boosted the global reach of the event, and although we miss seeing everyone in person, it has been exciting to include stars and filmmakers from around the world as they talk about their movies and share inside stories about bringing them to the screen.

The motion picture industry has certainly been impacted by this pandemic, especially with movie theatres shut down in many places around the world, and that has in turn affected the way that we view those movies, thereby making this a season like no other. Though many films originally slated to be contenders for this awards season have shuffled off to next year and beyond, the sheer quantity, and fortunately quality of those you will see on display at our 2021 Contenders Film weekend is proof of a remarkably resilient industry.

Also, the interesting thing is that so many of the films on hand, although conceived and shot before the pandemic took hold, are so ironically relevant in light of the shutting down of normal life and the way we live now. Call it art imitating life, but the need for human connection is real, and that is why, in our own way, we carry on the tradition of The Contenders—to keep us collectively connected to one thing we all have in common: our love for the movies.
