To help foster diverse voices in cinema, the Urbanite Arts & Film Festival is looking to promote young and underrepresented filmmakers. Running June 24th to the 26 at the Bedford Playhouse (633 Old Post Road, Bedford NY), the debut festival features short films, photographs, short films and spoken word from young artists around the world.
The mission of the Urbanites Arts & Film Festival is stated as…
…to foster the next generation of filmmakers that are underrepresented in the film industry. Launching its inaugural festival in June 2022, Urbanite Arts & Film Festival will highlight underrepresented voices including, but not limited to, young women, BIPOC, LatinX, LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, and the neuro-diverse communities. Through exhibition of their art, we create a platform for a diverse range of young artists to express themselves creatively and launch creative careers.
The festival opens with a ticketed Red Carpet event on Friday, June 24th. Films will be screened on June 25th, with the Award Ceremony & Artist Presentation on June 26th. The Urbanite Arts & Film Festival was founded by Alex Armando Torres, a self-taught filmmaker and photographer, seeking to lift up diverse under represented voices in cinema and art.
