Urbanworld is a five-day festival, anchored in film, showcasing narrative and documentary features, short films, spotlight screenings and conversations, and live staged screenplay readings. 

Stars like Ava DuVernay and Chadwick Boseman will make appearances at this one of a kind festival that aims to represent a broad lens of diversity and expand the definition of urban beyond ethnicity.

Highlights include the U.S. premiere of “Marshall,” the Thurgood Marshall bio starring Boseman, with a screening followed by a Q&A with Boseman, co-stars Sterling K. Brown and Josh Gad and director Reginald Hudlin, moderated by journalist Tamron Hall. Also on the roster is the debut of the midseason premiere of DuVernay’s “Queen Sugar,” followed by a conversation between series stars Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, and Kofi Siriboe with DuVernay and director Julie Dash.
