[fade]WHAT WE DO[/fade]
Hamptons Doc Fest is our signature event – an annual 5 day festival in December - ‘all docs all day’ - where we welcome filmmakers, documentary film lovers and local area students to the historic village of Sag Harbor, New York for dozens of films, discussions, panels, media labs, awards and celebrations. In this intimate, walkable setting, festival-goers enjoy the local area’s many shops, restaurants, inns, museums, and parks in between the screenings of outstanding new documentary films accompanied by discussions with the filmmakers.
Spring Docs & Fall Screenings bring some of the top films currently on the festival circuit to the East End audiences. The screenings are paired with filmmaker Q/As plus roundtables with appropriate experts on the film’s subject.
FilmArts+Forum. Hamptons Doc Fest created and supports this popular community outreach program which makes our award-winning festival films available at no cost to the East End and Shelter Island libraries as well as non-profit organizations such as the South Fork Natural History Society and the Parrish Museum, among others. If you missed it at the festival, catch it throughout the year at one of our yearly programs: FilmArts + Forum or Spring Docs.
Young Voices & The Media Lab Digital media and the moving image are the language of today’s youth, a generation held captive by the internet, cell phones, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, television, interactive video games and platforms yet to debut. Our two youth programs aim to teach students the language of film and social engagement through in-school programs (The Media Lab) and festival screenings and presentations (Young Voices).
