Continuing with the fall series of Contenders Film events already held in London and Los Angeles, including this weekend’s virtual international and documentary screenings, Deadline brings a personal Contenders event to New York – but with a twist.
Like Los Angeles and London, it will be a hybrid on Saturday, December 4 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. ET live, and will also be presented virtually between 9:30 a.m.-3: 30 p.m. ET. It will also be located in a brand new venue, the impressive Museum of Animation in Queens.
The Contenders events, which began a decade ago, are designed to give AMPAS, BAFTA and guild members an overview of this year’s awards season films.
Studios participating in Contenders Film: New York include the A24 with People and Zola; Amazon Studios with A Hero, The Tender Bar and Being Ricardo. Apple Original Films with A24 for The Macbeth tragedy? Apple original movies with CODA and Swan song; Focus Functions with Dead water and The card counter; MGM Pictures / United Artists Releasing with Cyrano, No Time to Die and Respect; Neon and Participant with Flee; Neon and Tropic Studios with Spencer; Netflix with Do not look up, Passing, The hand of God, The lost daughter and The Power of the Dog; and Warner Bros. with On high level and King Richard. The talents from the participating films will be announced at a future date.
Sponsors include Michter’s Distillery, Mezcal Los Siete Misterios, Eyepetizer and modMD. For those who attend in person, there will be breakfast, lunch and a reception after the event.
