Songbird is a 2020 American dystopian science fiction thriller film based on the COVID-19 pandemic. It is directed by Adam Mason, who wrote the screenplay with Simon Boyes, and produced by Michael Bay, Adam Goodman, Andrew Sugerman, and Eben Davidson. The film stars KJ Apa, Sofia Carson, Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Peter Stormare, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Walter Hauser, and Demi Moore.

The project was announced in May 2020, with screenwriters Adam Mason and Simon Boyes having come up with the idea in March, shortly after the pandemic stopped all film production. The cast joined in June, and filming took place around Los Angeles over July and August. It was the first film to have production following the shutdown.

Songbird was released through premium video on demand on December 11, 2020, by STX Films. It was overwhelmingly panned by critics, who considered the film fear-mongering propaganda and said it did not take advantage of its premise, although Stormare's performance was praised by some.
