Mr. Big came out to celebrate the small screen in Greenport Friday evening.

Chris Noth, whose Sex and the City character was referred to only as “Big” until the series finale, received the first “Canopy Award” at the second annual North Fork Tv Festival at the Greenport Theatre.

The event, now in its second year, is a showcase for independently produced television pilots in search of a distribution platform. It features three days of pilot screenings, panel discussions and parties. (more…)

It’s like the Sundance Film Festival, except it’s for television pilots instead of indie movies and will be held on the North Fork instead of Park City, Utah.

That’s Noah Doyle’s vision for the all-new North Fork TV Festival, which will take place at the Greenport Theatre on Front Street this Saturday, Aug. 20, from 1 to 8:30 p.m.

Four television pilots — or, more specifically, scripted episodic content — in search of distribution platforms will be screened during the one-day festival, said Doyle, the event’s founder. He hopes it will one day turn into a larger destination-type event. (more…)
