The three-day long North Fork TV Festival returns for its second season beginning Sept. 7 in Greenport.

The event, a showcase for independent television pilots, will take place at the historic Greenport Theatre and other locations throughout the village and beyond.

“We are thrilled that the Festival has found a true home on the North Fork and for the amazing partnerships we have built in and around town,” Founder Noah Doyle said in a statement. “This year’s lineup will feature incredible independent TV pilots, conversations with industry executives and an awards evening recognizing pioneers and up-and-comers in television.”

In addition to four screenings, the festival features VIP parties on Thursday, Sept. 7 at Noah’s and Friday, Sept. 8 at Castello di Borghese Vineyard in Cutchogue, and a Sept. 9 brunch at the Sound View in Greenport. A panel discussion with television industry insiders is also planned for Sept. 9.

A closing night party with audience awards will be hosted Sept. 9. Northforker.com is among the sponsors for the festival, which benefits the East End Seaport Museum in Greenport.

All-access festival passes are currently on sale for $199.
