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 showing off locations from Calverton to downtown Riverhead to Northville 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 starting with a stop in Calverton and Riverhead on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning before heading east to Greenport. Over 20 stops will be made in two days, starting in Centerport and ending in East Hampton.

After touring western Suffolk during the day, the group will stop off at the Calverton 'Open House' Kitchen from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m. on Wednesday The Open House Kitchen is a small-scale food processing center that offers farmers and growing businesses the opportunity to explore retail food production ideas – without shelling out the costs of purchasing new equipment.
Thursday morning from 8:30 to 9, the Film Commission will lead a walking tour of downtown Riverhead, from the courthouse to downtown. The downtown tour will be followed by a walk-through of Hallockville Museum Farm. Hallockville, a 28-acre step back in time, features nearly 20 homes on site and recently celebrated its 32nd Annual Fall Festival.
