For the Split Screen Festival, a major focus in 2018 will be diversity – from platforms and voices to genders and races both in front of and behind the scenes; as well as thoughtful perspectives and insights about America’s favorite pastime from some of television’s most popular casts and creators.
Split Screens will offer a snapshot of the landscape, where television is today and where it is heading with premiere episodes of highly anticipated new pilots, a refreshing look back at culturally relevant franchises and explore the future of content through the lens of a new generation of rising talent.
The 2018 Split Screens Festival will take place at New York’s IFC Center from Thursday, May 31 through Sunday, June 3. The Festival’s full lineup will be announced in April.

Earlier today, Warner Bros. dropped the final trailer for Justice League.
It still has the kind of ponderous feel of a Zack Snyder film, but is leavened with some very potent humor (personally, I’m going to see Justice League for Aquaman’s somewhat flip attitude and zest for battle, alongside The Flash’s geeky awe and enthusiasm).
