The Get Down
For several years now we have been in what some would consider a “golden age” for television, with many long form shows on the air, and more daring material emerging on streaming services like Netflix. Celebrating both great works in scripted shows and the future to come with more independent and DIY style creators, the inaugural Split Screen Festival (June 2 - 8, 2017) brings together a plethora of guests, screenings and premieres. Held at the IFC Center (323 6th Ave, New York, NY), the festival is curated by one of television's biggest fans, author and critic Matt Zoller Seitz, and is split into four categories:
The Split Screen Festival will include guests from shows such as Better Call Saul, Mr. Robot, Sneaky Pete, Orphan Black, The Sopranos, The Get Down, and more.

Featuring some of the biggest names in publishing, BookExpo returns to the Jacob Javits Center May 31 to June 4th with everything from cooking, to art, to YA fiction. A new edition to BooxExpo is BookCon (think New York Comic Con but with a literary touch. Makes sense since both are organized by ReedPOP) with special events for young and old alike.
The likes of Abrams, Scholastic, and more exhibit their upcoming works while panels examine book marketing, the future of the literary business, and how to promote international titles, to name a few.
There will also be the plethora of signings from authors and personalities such as Mike Tyson(!), Gene Luen Yang, New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast, rum historian Fred Minnick, and many more.
