Deadline’s Contenders series has grown steadily over the past decade into an early must attend stop on the awards circuit and now includes events in London, Los Angeles, New York, plus Contenders Television, Documentary, and International. But it all started in L.A. well over a decade ago and continues to thrive as a one-stop opportunity for Academy and key guild members to sample the top hopefuls as the season ramps up. A sterling lineup of talent will be on view on the DGA stage, and now the audience will be bigger than ever as we also live stream the proceedings including some stars coming in from around the globe as well.
