2013 Festival dates December 6 - 7 - 8 back at Bay Street Theatre, Sag Harbor NY Hope we see you there.
The impetus for the Take 2 Documentary Film Festival of the Hamptonsnow in its 6th year, is to create high-visibility, theatrical venues for talented documentary filmmakers whose works deserve screen time, a second cut or ‘take 2’ as they say in the movie making business.
HT2FF was founded and run by documentary filmmakers whose passion for the genre celebrates and appreciates what it takes to produce a memorable doc. Our mission is to build community around the art of visual storytelling. Albert Maysles, veteran documentary filmmaker of “Grey Gardens”, said: “Documentaries are not diversion but engagement. We’re not trying to move you away from life, but closer to it.”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.
In the past 5 years the community response assured us its preference and appreciation for quality documentary films produced by artistsfrom Montauk to Manhattan. We are seen as the ‘art house’ festival presenting film programs of both emerging and award-winning documentaries combined with insightful Q/A discussions that ignite lively conversation with appreciative audience members.
An email from a festival fan says it best:
“I just wanted to say thanks for giving us what is my favorite event out here. I haven't stopped talking about the wonderful docs you presented. I am spreading the word and hope that HT2FF becomes an institution here. I am already looking forward to next year. Linda Schwartz."
A good story can make a good doc but a good story told with talent and
heart makes a doc you’ll talk about after the theatre lights come up.
