The Contenders 2018

November 08, 2018–January 08, 2019

Posted on October 12, 2018

The Museum of Modern Art announces its selection of the boldest films of 2018 for the 11th year of The Contenders, running November 8, 2018, through January 8, 2019. MoMA’s annual end-of-year series offers audiences the unique opportunity to peer behind the industry curtain, with special presentations that often feature revealing post-screening conversations with filmmakers and actors. Tickets for the MoMA screenings go on sale two weeks prior to each screening at 9:30 a.m. at The Museum of Modern Art and online at moma.org/contenders.

Opening the series at the Museum on November 8 is Steve McQueen’s Widows (2018), a blistering, modern-day thriller set against a backdrop of crime, passion, and corruption. Widows  is the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Oscar winner Viola Davis leads a knockout ensemble of women who take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms. Director Steve McQueen and Producer Iain Canning will be present for a post-screening discussion on opening night.

A full screening schedule can be found here.

Organized by the Department of Film.

Media Sponsorship is provided by The Hollywood Reporter.

The presentation is supported by the Annual Film Fund. Leadership support for the Annual Film Fund is provided by the Kate W. Cassidy Foundation and Steven Tisch, with major contributions from Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP), Yuval Brisker Charitable Foundation, The Brown Foundation, Inc., of Houston, Marlene Hess and James D. Zirin, Karen and Gary Winnick, and The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art.
