We would like thank all who took the time to vote and return your Audience Award ballots following each screening. The votes have been counted and our 2018 Fall Audience Award goes to SKID ROW MARATHON! Congratulations to director Mark Hayes, producer Gabi Hayes and their team for another victory! In honor of their win, we will be giving a donation to the Skid Row Running Club an organization that uses the power of running to improve the lives of those who are at risk of homelessness and addiction.
It was a close call, and, as in all past seasons, every film came in above the “very good” mark.
Please check back for updates on our 2019 Spring Series which begins on March 4th. We will start selling our Early Bird Season Passes in the beginning of December, before the holidays. And please continue to vote for us in the Film Festival category in the Best of Long Island Competition – voting info below!
We were honored to win both the 2017 and 2018 Best of LI contest in the film festival category. It is now time to defend our title again and we hope you will help us come in first for 2019. Starting on Oct. 1st, please visit the Best of LI website to vote for us under ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT in the film festival category. You can vote once a day, everyday, until Dec. 15th.

“Long Island’s film festival scene has come a long way, and it’s undeniable that each plays a vital role in giving Long Island audiences a diverse offering of films. Standing out for its devotion to documentaries—which are evocative, thought provoking, and shed light on often-unrepresented segments of our population—is the Port Jefferson Documentary Series. The series has been highlighting some of the best documentaries from around the world since 2005. For more than a decade, the Port Jefferson Documentary Series’ volunteer members diligently screen a vast assortment of films each and every year in order to select the best documentaries that should be represented. Talk about commitment to the arts! Its no wonder why Long Islanders voted Port Jefferson Documentary Series the best!”
