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 is leading a tour through the area on Wednesday.
The trip leads up to 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 from the Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport with a stop in Calverton and Riverhead on Wednesday evening. On Thursday morning the tour heads east to Greenport and crosses the Peconic Bay and Shelter Island en route to Sag Harbor. Over 20 stops will be made in two day.
The goal is to acquaint representatives with the county's many historic locations available to film makers, television productions, and documentarians.
