In anticipation of the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony on April 25, we’re pleased to re-screen a trio of films—originally shown as part of The Contenders 2020—that garnered the admiration of Academy voters. Members at the Explore category and above are also invited to A Member’s Guide to the Oscars, a live online conversation between chief film curator Rajendra Roy and New York Times critic-at-large Wesley Morris, on Wednesday, April 21. Join us to break down this year’s nominations, talk favorites and underdogs, and celebrate the films of 2020.

Organized by the Department of Film.
