IndieWire ’90s Week!

A complete schedule of all the lists, essays, interviews, and guest posts we have planned for our celebration of the '90s.

Welcome to IndieWire ’90s Week, an unfettered celebration of the decade that every millennial will always think of as “10 years ago.”

This completely random celebration of the last years of the 20th century — a critical tribute to the spirit of a time that no reboot or legacy sequel could ever quite manage to capture — kicks off with our ranked mega-list of the decade’s 100 greatest films (as real ’90s kids might say, #24 will blow your mind), and follows that up with interviews with the people who made them, essays about how the impact these modern classics had on the world at large, close listens of the scores and needle-drops that still reverberate in our ears, and more.

Below, you’ll find a comprehensive schedule of the ’90s Week goodness to come, which will update with links to our stories as they go live over the course of the week. Cowabunga, dudes!
