Life in a Day 2020 is a 2021 crowdsourced documentary film. Sequel to the 2011 version of Life in a Day, it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on February 1, 2021, and on YouTube February 6. Like its predecessor, it comprises a wide array of selected video clips showing things happening in the world on one day: July 25, 2020.
The announcement of the film was published on the movie's YouTube channel on July 8, 2020, coinciding with the COVID-19 pandemic, the George Floyd protests, natural disasters, etc., which Sundance Film Festival director Tabitha Jackson sees as "the perfect time to premiere this for a new edition of a work that so powerfully demonstrates the power of cinematic storytelling to reveal and celebrate our shared humanity."
The film follows the same structure as its 2011 predecessor, comprising selected vlogs of people all around the world, talking about themselves on the same day, July 25, 2020. Submissions were open from July 25 to August 2. A team of multilingual editors and researchers selected noteworthy submissions.
