The lineup for the 23rd annual Urbanworld Film Festival was announced Friday, with Tony-award winning broadway actor Cynthia Erivo and Emmy award-winning director Roger Ross Williams making appearances at the event, which is geared towards representing and celebrating diverse, international voices in film, music videos, television, screenplays and shorts.
The 23rd Annual Urbanworld Film Festival, along with founding partner HBO, announced its 2019 festival slate today.
Founded in 1977, the Urbanworld Film Festival is one of the largest internationally competitive festivals of its kind. And to judge by its current slate of films for 2019, their definition of “urban” is decidedly open, expanding beyond ethnicity to include sensibility, culture and proximity.
