Gun Hill

The Urbanworld Film Festival is set to take New York City by storm from September 18-22, and with so many great films in the lineup, prioritizing can be difficult. This year's fest, presented once again by BET Networks, boasts dozens of features, shorts and documentaries. Here's our top-10 list of must-see films.

The festival's spotlight and a BET original film, Gun Hill tops our list. The drama stars Larenz Tate in a dual role as two brothers on opposite sides of the law. When one is murdered, the other assumes his identity in order to find his killer. The film is directed by Reggie Rock Blythewood, whose writing credits include Notorious and Get on the Bus.
