The 14th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival kicked off yesterday at the AMC 34th St Theater in New York City. Actress Kerry Washington and actor Jamie Hector were the stars of their night for their roles in Night Catches Us.

Here’s what they had to say about the festival:

“This is a great night for black film,” said Washington, who dazzled the red carpet. “I will always support independent film because that’s the community I came out of,” added Hector. “And I’m still in it.”
