Deep in the heart of another unpredictable awards season, we’re launching our contribution to the conversation with the annual IndieWire Awards Spotlight series.
Now through the Oscars, we’ll bring you conversations twice a week with some of our favorite contenders. These are actresses, writers, documentarians, and composers who come from films across the spectrum — from thoughtful studio films to underdog low-budget independent titles. And they have great stories to tell.
Those stories are coming to us with help from our partners at Movies On Demand, who shot and produced the video interviews, and from Hollywood Proper, who provided location services for our Los Angeles shoots.
Here’s a taste of what the next few months have in store:
Each interview will also feature exclusive portraits from photographer Daniel Bergeron and profiles from our film staff. We’re proud of the range of this year’s lineup and very excited to share these conversations.
This week, we’ll have chats with an intriguing trio of individuals. Naomie Harris will be talking about her haunting supporting role in “Moonlight,” Mica Levi will discuss her original score for “Jackie,” and Clay Tweel will give some insights into the making of the heartwarming documentary “Gleason.”
