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 will be stopping off in Shoreham on Wednesday before heading to the Hamptons.
The trip comes in the wake of 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 hit the area with a stop at the Shoreham Nuclear Power Plant on Wednesday, before making their east Wednesday evening. Thursday morning, the group make their way out to Greenport before jumping over to Sag Harbor. Over 20 stops will be made in two days, starting in Centerport and ending in East Hampton.
The bus will leave New York City at 8 a.m. on Wednesday. Prior to arriving in Shoreham, the group will tour the Vanderbilt Museum, Scully Estate, Deepwell's Farm and other areas before having lunch at the Three Village Inn and going by Port Jefferson Village.
The tour is expected to arrive in Shoreham around 4:30 p.m. and stay until 5ish, at which point it will continue onto Calverton to finish its Wednesday trip.
