Christmas for BitTorrent users.

Screener season takes place in early January to mid-February when special DVD copies of movies being considered for awards like the Oscars are sent out to voters.

These movies are usually still in theaters / cinemas at the time so the only other pirated copies around are poor quality cams.

Inevitably, these special copies find their way onto popular BitTorrent sites like Pirate Bay.

You can tell it's a screener because there's a watermark that pops up every so often saying "For Your Consideration".
Jim: Do you guys want to go see Django at the movie theatre on Thursday?

Dave: It's screener season next week dude, I can just hook my laptop up to the TV.

Jim: Oh sweet.
