“What I love about Urbanworld is that it highlights voices that usually go unheard,” says a panelist. “The filmmakers that attend this festival are welcomed with such love and generosity that you really feel like you belong.” While a bevy of insider experts on financing, distribution, and marketing certainly help make the fest’s industry activity feel inclusive, Urbanworld’s focus on diverse programming, along with its constant redefinition of what it means for stories to be “urban,” fosters inclusivity in a broader social and cultural context. Urbanworld’s Manhattan-headquartered action includes The Stand, a live pitch platform for diverse content creators where teams screen a short selection and pitch their project to a panel of investors.
