The North Fork TV Festival returned to Greenport for its third consecutive year over the weekend.

The festival premiered four independent television pilot episodes at the historic Greenport Theatre, along with an Actors Panel, its first Family Screening, a Showrunner’s Panel, and various other events celebrating independent film.

On Thursday, September 6, actress Bridget Moynahan kicked off the festival with cocktails and appetizers at Kon Tiki in Greenport’s Gallery Hotel. Greenport Mayor George Hubbard presented Moynahan with a certification of commendation as Ambassador for the Arts to the Village of Greenport.

The festival continued its celebration with an opening night party on Friday at the Greenport Brewery in Peconic and closed on Saturday night with the “Worlds Within Worlds: Oyster Season Kick Off Party” at the Greenport American Legion. Independent television pilots “America,” “The Russian Cousin,” “Alive In Denver,” and “Russian Room” premiered over the weekend.
