Guest Speaker: Co-Director, Julie Cohen

At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. In RBG, through intimate interviews and unprecedented access to Ginsburg’s life outside the court, directors Julie Cohen and Betsy West tell the electric story of Ginsburg’s consuming love affairs with both the Constitution and her beloved husband Marty—and of a life’s work that led her to become a defender of justice in the highest court in the land.

Time: 96 minutes

2018 Spring Series Audience Award

The audience has spoken and the winner of our 2018 Spring Series Audience Award is our closing night heartwarming film MOLE MAN! Congratulations to director Guy Fiorita and his team for creating such a fascinating film about lovable, creative Ron Heist!

We must mention that all of the films we screened scored above the “Very Good” mark again, which confirms our feeling that we choose the best docs out there. Thanks to all who attended our 2018 Spring Series! Looking forward to seeing all at our very special summer screening on June 25th and our 2018 Fall Series which begins on Sept. 17th.

We won the 2018 Best of LI: Film Festival contest for the 2nd year in a row!

“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!”
