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 stopping off in Sag Harbor to showcase the port village.
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 make its way east starting with a stop in Calverton and Riverhead on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning before heading east to Greenport and crossing the Peconic Bay and Shelter Island en route to Sag Harbor. Over 20 stops will be made in two days, starting in Centerport and ending in East Hampton.
Thursday morning, the Film Commission will lead a tour of downtown Riverhead, followed by another of Greenport and the popular Brecknock Hall.
Following their trip on the North Fork, the group will take a tour of local landmarks such as the Old Whalers Church, Jermain Library, the Whaling Museum, Mashashimuet Park, Otter Pond, and others. They are expected to arrive around 1:15 p.m.
