Death Lives - Independent Pilot
The hopeful Grim Reaper quits his job and starts making up for lost time while the rules of humanity and pleasing his almighty father get in the way.
The Northfork TV Producers Panel is part of an ongoing effort to demystify the production process. Festival goers will hear first person accounts of how one can succeed in a business that often seems to be lacking a center. No two success stories are the same and emerging artists will be informed and energized by the trials and experiences of accomplished writers, producers and showrunners. The casual viewer will enjoy the inside perspective on how compelling stories and memorable characters make it to our televisions, computer screens and smartphones.
Up North - Independent Pilot
In the New York prison system, it’s just as hard getting out as it is going in. An innocent teenager, an elder convict, and a vicious street hustler fight their way out of the corrupt prison system and dangerous city streets.
Conversation with Julie Klausner
Experience Julie's comedy as she discusses Difficult People, her career as a writer, performer and producer, and more with emmy Award winning director, screen writer, producer and actor Bill Persky.
"From the Ashes" - Special Screening
From National Geographic Documentary Films, From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be under the Trump Administration. From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate. The film invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives.
VIP Closing Night Party presented by the Gersh Talent Agency
Join the creators, actors and industry executives involved in the weekend for our send off party in The Halyard, within the Sound View Hotel. Enjoy local food and drink while discussing the weekend and watching the sunset.
James Beard Award-Winning Chef Galen Zamarra of The Halyard will host the Closing Night Party presented by the Gersh Talent Agency Galen Zamarra is the chef and owner of Mas (farmhouse) in New York City and oversees all of the food and beverage at the newly re-opened Sound View Greenport, including the waterfront restaurant, The Halyard, as well as a piano bar and lounge, pool and beach bar, and private event space.
The Halyard embodies the property’s nautical geography and history with fresh produce, seafood and wine from the North Fork and Atlantic Seaboard. The menu includes American classics that evoke childhood nostalgia as well as local seafood offerings. The maritime design is felt throughout, from classic captain’s chairs and family-style wooden tables to an exposed ceiling truss that welcomes an abundance of natural light. A sprawling outdoor deck that looks out onto the Long Island Sound completes the space.
