Event Pics: Chris Rock, Spike Lee, Mario Van Peebles & More @ Urbanworld Open

The 15th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival presented by BET Networks kicked off last night in NYC with the Opening Night world premiere of Nelson George and Diane Paragas’ documentary Brooklyn Boheme. Stars such as Chris Rock, Spike Lee, festival ambassador Mario Van Peebles, Maxwell, Meka Claxton, Giancarlo Esposito and John Boyega (who’s filming a movie with Spike) came out in support of the film many describe as a “love letter to Brooklyn.”

Additional celebs/VIPs in attendance included BET’s Stephen Hill, Basketball Wives’ Meeka Claxton, radio personality Egypt Sherrod, culture critic Michaela Angela Davis, stylist/entrepreneur Marlo Hampton, actor Hassan Johnson, and director Qasim Basir.

Special Thanks to Saptosa Foster of The 135th Street Agency, the PR Firm that made the media feel very welcome and worked hard to put on a great event.
