Movie lovers, get ready!

The American Black Film Festival is coming back to New York City June 11-14, 2015.

The four-day festival will take place at the New York Hilton Midtown and AMC Empire 25 Theater.

New additions for next year include “a TV Writers Workshop, Network Expo, and case studies of popular current television shows,” according to a press release.

“With the renewed prestige of mainstream television and the proliferation of multi-platform distribution, the ABFF will now feature more television-related content that networks can draw on to connect with and promote programming to African American viewers,” said Jeff Friday, founder and CEO, in a statement. “The festival hopes to attract new broadcast partners – network, television and Internet – who are strongly committed to speaking to a diverse audience.”

Founding sponsor HBO is set to return as well.
