The 19th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival, presented by BET Networks and founding sponsor HBO is coming to New York City.

The five-day festival is jammed packed with features, documentaries, short films, spotlight screenings, and so much more.
Festival Ambassador, Tyrese Gibson and Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson star in “Shame,” a Paul Hunter film produced by Denzel Washington. If those three names dont draw your attention, I don’t know what will! The short film written by Gibson, is about an up-and-coming soul singer who wants to do right by his wife and their children, but his struggle with drugs and alcohol test the strength of his fidelity and their relationship.
Just to name drop, ABC News Correspondent Deborah Roberts, Academy Award® winner Geoffrey Fletcher, Orange Is The New Black’s Selenis Leyva, Raven-Symoné, Loretta Devine, Lamman Rucker, Angie Martinez, Bevy Smith and Omari Hardwick are also confirmed to attend the week-long event.
