In 2020, history is being made every day.
Australian bushfires. Civil unrest in Hong Kong. A pandemic that took precious lives and changed the way we live. Protests in every corner of America — and around the world — to demand that Black Lives Matter.
But in the midst of these extraordinary events, everyday life still continues.
We share moments, music, and meals.
We dance. We laugh. We cry.
We love. We fear. We hope.
What if we captured all of it in a single day?
On Saturday, July 25, 2020, film your day and upload your footage and you may become part of a historic documentary – a time capsule of the year 2020.
Anyone can participate and submissions from all over the world will be woven together to create a feature film, produced by Ridley Scott, directed by Kevin Macdonald, filmed by you, and premiering at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.
Submissions open on July 25th and close on August 2nd.
Learn more about filming requirements and how to take part.
Let’s write the story of 2020 together.TAKE PART
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
“A rousing success of an experiment: quite possibly the first large-scale, global use of the Internet to create meaningful and beautiful art.”
In July 2010, tens of thousands of people picked up their cameras and followed a simple invitation: show us what your day looks like.
With over 80,000 clips submitted from 189 countries, Life in a Day became the biggest participatory film project ever made. From 4,500 hours of footage, Kevin Macdonald and his team created a 90-minute feature film that premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and on YouTube. It’s since been watched over 16 million times.
You can watch the full film here.
I hope that you will take part in this event.
