Life in a day.
July 25th.
Film Your Day.
Share Your Story.
On July 25, 2020, film your day and you may become part of a historic global documentary, produced by Ridley Scott, directed by Kevin Macdonald and filmed by you. Get ready to take part.

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.
The Library also would love for you to share your stories with us!
Share your experiences with COVID-19 and social distancing! By sharing your story you will leave an important historical record of what day-to-day life is like for future generations who will learn about this time period from history books. Stories and responses will be collected through this Google form. Submissions will be accepted throughout the entire year of 2020 and will be displayed in our digital local history collection.
