The 2013 Urbanworld Film Festival presented by BET Networks opened last night with a red carpet premiere of David E. Talbert’s romantic comedy, “Baggage Claim.” Stars Paula Patton, Derek Luke, Jill Scott, Jenifer Lewis and Rickey Smiley were on the red carpet and chatted with the media following the screening at SVA Theater in New York City. Following, guests headed over to The Out for an after party that featured a performance from artist Luke James, among others.
Urbanworld will continue throughout the weekend with spotlight screenings of VH1’s “Finding the Funk,” “Little Ballers,” “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete,” and BET’s “Gun Hill,” starring festival ambassador Larenz Tate. For tickets, visit www.urbanworld.org.
