In an effort to draw continued attention to various locations within Suffolk County as shooting locales for the New York City film and entertainment industry, the county's Film Commission will be showing off Greenport before heading to the Hamptons.
The trip comes in the wake of the kick-off to the Hamptons International Film Festival, which starts on Thursday and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
Dubbed a "familiarization tour," the Film Commission's trip – which will include city film industry producers and television location managers – will hit the area starting with a stop in Calverton and Riverhead on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning before heading east. Over 20 stops will be made in two days, starting in Centerport and ending in East Hampton.
A tour of Brecknock Hall, a popular celebration location centered in Peconic Landing, will take place from 11 to 11:30 a.m.
The Film Commission will then take a 'Greenport Exploration' with Mayor David Nyce and Village Administrator David Abatelli from 11:45 to 12:15 p.m. The duo will show off what the village has to offer waterside scenes in a spot Yachting Magazine named one of the top 50 yachting locations in the United States.
Following their North Fork tour, the group will head over to Sag Harbor and then the opening of the HIFF.
