Three days of premieres, panels and parties.

Enjoy a weekend by the water in historic Greenport Village celebrating independent storytelling & emerging TV talent.


The North Fork TV Festival is a three day celebration of independent scripted television. Centered in the historic Greenport Theater, this year's festival runs from Thursday, Sept 7th through Saturday, Sept 9th, 2017. Join us for screenings of some truly unique and deeply personal stories, not yet available to the general public. Sit in on one of our panels featuring actors, emerging creators and established industry professionals. Be entertained, ask questions, vote for your favorite show, and treat yourself to an amazing dining experience with an incredible assortment of beer, wine and local dishes.  The North Fork TV Festival proudly supports the East End Seaport Museum and its ongoing efforts to conserve the maritime history of the East End.
