MISSION & OBJECTIVE
HT2FF was founded in 2008 by documentary filmmakers with a passion for the genre. We continue to celebrate talented local documentary filmmakers whose works deserve screen time, a second cut or ‘take 2’ as they say in the movie making business. Since 2008 we’ve responded to growing audiences and community support. Throughout the year, we continue to screen important documentary films partnered with stimulating panel discussions.

HT2FF supports documentary filmmakers with priority given to those from New York to the eastern reaches of Long Island both upcoming and established by providing high-quality showcases for their artistic vision. The popular Bay Street Theatre in historic Sag Harbor village, NY provides a lively environment for artists and writers. And it is an easy car, bus or train ride from NYC and airports.

The intimate and friendly atmosphere of this filmmakers' festival is conducive for making connections with other industry professionals. Visiting film artists and guests routinely comment on how the festival is professional, welcoming, well organized AND affordable.



ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
HT2FF believes that docs rock. They can change your mind and change the world. No doubt about it. Docs have come out of dark art theatres and come of age screening in mainstream theatres, on television, broadcast and cable, online, on mobile phones, iPads, tablets and digital streams yet to be invented. HT2FF is a champion of documentary film and filmmakers who are drawn to stories, big and small, told with rich visual components captured live or relived in archival footage.

Each year HT2FF honors a documentary icon and celebrates them for pioneering work and contribution to the genre. 3 years ago we honored Richard Leacock, the pioneer in cinema verite; 2012 we honored Susan Lacy, the creator and producer of the PBS/WNET series "American Masters"; 2013 we honored the esteemed documentary team of D A Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus. Each honoree is the centerpiece of a sold-out Gala offering food, wine, guest tributes and a feature documentary screening.

HT2FF presents an annual "Filmmaker's Choice Award" made to a documentary director/producer selected by prior festival filmmakers. In 2013 Lana Jokel was selected for her lifetime achievement in creating documentaries about famous artists such as Robert Motherwell, Lee Krasner, Claes Oldenburg, Howard Kanovitz and Isamu Nogushi. The award included a screening of her acclaimed documentary "Larry Rivers Public and Private."

HT2FF proudly presents an exciting "Young Voices" segment that screens fine documentary short films created by high school and college students. It is a fine opportunity for audiences to see their work on the big screen. Many careers are launched with our Young Voices screenings.

HT2FF presents an Audience Award to the documentary film audiences select by ballot. It includes a $500 cash prize.

In 2013 HT2FF screened 22 films including feature length and short documentaries. The festival ran 3 days, 10 am to 10pm. Our mantra is 'all docs all day.' For 2014, the festival will expand to 4 days: December 4-5-6-7. Be part of it and submit today.
