Visit the Hamptons Film Festival, Pick Pumpkins!

The Hamptons Film Festival

The Hamptons Film Festival

A visit to The International Hamptons Film Festival is a treat for movie lovers, not only for the quality of the films, but for its location in the beautiful East End of Long Island at a time of year that to many is the prettiest. The milling crowds of summer visitors have have thinned but the pristine beaches, bucolic countryside, 5 star restaurants, farm stands and vineyards are all still open for business. The festival co-incides with the beginning of fall foliage season and the weather is at it’s most pleasant; you can usually depend on sunny dry days and cool nights.

Hamptons Film Festival

This fall season the Festival will show 13 films in five days opening Thursday October 10th with ‘Kill Your Darlings’ starring Daniel Radcliffe and Michael C Hall. The movie has been described as possessing  “a loose, heady energy that echoes a Beat poem …The director, John Krokidas’ impressive feature film debut tracks the meeting of Allen Ginsberg, Lucien Carr, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs during Ginsberg’s early days at Columbia University.”

To view the full Film Festival program and purchase tickets visit the Hamptons Film Festival website.  In planning your itinerary why not consider taking in more that the East End of Long Island has to offer and include a stay with us at the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast or at one of our luxury North Fork rental properties.

Sunset at the Shorecrest BnB beach in Southold

From pumpkins to sunsets on the North Fork

The Hamptons Film festival coincides with Harvest in the wine and farm country of the North Fork where Shorecrest is located.  A stay in our lovingly maintained 1860’s Inn offers private beaches for walks and sunset views, gourmet breakfast and concierge services to help you plan your visit. Located just 5 minutes drive from Greenport village ferry which will transport visitors and their cars to Shelter Island and from there via the South Ferry to the Hamptons, you can combine your movie watching with a taste of the North Fork and take the opportunity to get to know the area better.

Recent guests at one of our secluded beach front rentals told me they spotted 5 shooting stars during their three night stay, a common occurrence when the skies are as dark as they are renowned for out here. Something different and unique for you to look forward to when you return from a night at the cinema!

During your visit be sure to pick up some organic local produce, eggs, corn, goat cheese and wine, and don’t forget the apples and pumpkins.

For more information on the Hamptons Film festival as well as great restaurants, farm stands, vineyards, harvest, pumpkin picking and other things to do visit our Events page for a calendar of East End activities and The Area page on our website for an interactive map of local North Fork attractions.

We hope you enjoy a wonderful time at the Hamptons Film Festival and look forward to welcoming to Southold and the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast soon!
