20 years and counting...

Urbanworld20… as we approach two decades of providing a platform that celebrates content makers and innovators, we are grateful for our past and poised for the future. Urbanworld’s longstanding history of highlighting the industry’s most established and most promising filmmakers is a tradition that will continue in 2016 and beyond, with 5 days of premieres, panels, and parties. Welcome to the convergence of Film, Digital, and Music…where creativity and craft meet commerce and calling.

Shantell Martin

To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, Urbanworld is honored to collaborate with genius visual artist and storyteller, Shantell Martin, on an exclusive work of art encompassing the essence of Urbanworld. With simplicity and nuance, she shares her interpretation of Urbanworld, telling a tale of who we are and what we represent. Both her unique work and wisdom will be highlighted across the festival in various ways.
