The North Fork TV Festival has announced that two-time Golden Globe nominee and SAG Award nominated actor Chris Noth will receive the inaugural Canopy Award during the 2017 festival. Noth will accept the award on Friday, September 8 at the Greenport Theatre in Greenport.

"I'm so honored to be presented with the Canopy Award at this year's North Fork TV Festival," Noth shared. "I've lived and worked in New York for years, and I've shot all over New York State and Long Island, so being a part of this particular festival really means a lot to me. I can't wait to see everyone out east this September."

The Canopy Award honors a member of the New York creative community whose work "embodies the independent spirit of persistence, integrity and collaboration" while also generating opportunities for and inspiring individuals with a story to tell.

"Having an opportunity to honor actors like Chris Noth has always been part of our vision for the festival," said Noah Doyle, Founder of the North Fork TV Festival, "and it is our honor that in just one year we have been recognized by the TV community as a formidable venue for celebrating actors, writers, and industry executives and providing an opportunity to showcase independent creatives."

Noth first rose to prominence while starring as Detective Mike Logan on the original Law and Order. Following his departure from the NBC show, Noth went on to star opposite Sarah Jessica Parker as Mr. Big on HBO's iconic series Sex and the City. The actor's role on the show earned him his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy. Noth played the primary on-and-off love interest of Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw for the entirety of the series, including the two blockbuster movies, Sex and the City and . Once the HBO hit wrapped, Noth went on to star in several other shows, including the CBS hit drama Good Wife and the NBC series Gone. Some of Noth's film credits include Mr.3000, Cast Away and Naked in New York.

"It's really great that in one year, the North Fork TV Festival has grown to a caliber that Chris Noth, both a New Yorker and a TV great, is going to join and be honored," said Festival Honorary Chair Bill Persky. "Plus, I've had some questions for Chris Noth about Sex and the City and now I'll get to ask."

The 3-day festival will feature an awards night with Artistic Director Jerry Foley presenting the inaugural Loud Whisper and Canopy Awards, an Opening Night Kick-off Party at the Castello di Borghese Winery, industry panels, screenings of independent television pilots and a closing night party at the East End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation.

"We are excited and grateful to have Chris Noth as this year's North Fork Canopy Award honoree. He is absolutely the perfect person to support and celebrate the explosion of fresh voices in television and content production," said Artistic Director Jerry Foley. "Chris' enduring accomplishments in film, theater and television provide motivation and direction to independent storytellers navigating the often frustrating pursuit of giving life to their themes and characters."

Festival passes are currently available for purchase online and individual tickets will go on sale at a later date.

"Beyond his artistic achievements, Chris has also claimed his spot as an iconic New Yorker," added Foley. "His creations of Detective Mike Logan and Mr. Big reflect the dash, grit, humor and ambitions of all of us in this crazy love affair with the world's most confounding metropolis. We couldn't be happier to have Chris with us in Greenport this September."

The Greenport Theatre is located at 211 Front Street in Greenport. For more information visit www.northfork.tv.
