Looking Back on Split Screens 2019
As the curtain closes on the third edition of Split Screens, we are looking back on what may have been our best year yet. Just a few highlights…
We honored Janet Mock with the Split Screens Vanguard Award. Watch her acceptance speech.
Hundreds of fans convened at SVA Theatre to watch the much-anticipated Deadwood: The Movie on the big screen followed by Q&A with director Daniel Minahan, actress Robin Weigert and actor Ian McShane (via live video).
Pamela Adlon charmed a sold-out audience with career and life advice and behind-the scenes stories from Better Things.
We previewed the season premiere of Queen Sugar and welcomed the cast, show-runner and episode director for an invigorating panel discussion.
And many, many more! Check out our Flickr for great shots from our talented photographers, Carlos Sanfer, Lou Aguilar and Simon Luethi.
If you missed it, some great mentions of Split Screens in the press:
- Mentions in The New York Times, AM New York, WBAI and more
- Featured articles in Vulture, Brooklyn Vegan, Deadline, Metro and more
And now, a collection of some of our favorite tweets.
MOOD: still coasting on all the good vibes acquired at the @SplitScreensTV (S)heroes: Women of Action panel, thank you again/forevermore to @McTelevision and @mattzollerseitz for having me!

So many great moments @SplitScreensTV this year. @BSmilanich and I kept finding ourselves saying "that alone was worth the trip!" over and over again. @mattzollerseitz, this festival you've created has taught me so much about the art & craft of television.
Thank you. pic.twitter.com/THJnFWM2Q2
