The Parrish Art Museum is hosting a summer screening of the Annual Maritime Film Festival, which was founded by Timothy Regan and street artist Andrew "PORK" Poneros, on Friday, August 15, 2014, at 7 p.m. The mini festival will feature fourteen short films that are all under five minutes in length, and is part of the larger festival that "aims to explore the human legacy of life and expedition on the water."

The festival encourages artists and filmmakers to share their appreciation of and relationship to the sea. "We are delighted to host the films and special guests, artists Andrew Poneros and Duke Riley," said Parrish Curator of Special Projects, Andrea Grover. "The Maritime Film Festival has a unique focus on contemporary artists working with maritime themes and with our own forthcoming exhibition on this subject, Radical Seafaring opening in 2016, it was a natural fit."

Last year, the Maritime Film Festival screened in Brooklyn's Red Hook neighborhood and this year, it is expanding with this event at the Parrish. "In celebration of both seamanship and art we wanted to bring the festival to the Hamptons," said Poneros. "The Parrish Art Museum, being the Mecca of art on Long Island, along with its captivating architecture is the perfect setting to showcase our films."

Films screened will include The Deep End by Jake Fried, Bottled History by Smith Journal, Blast by Ignatz Johnson Higham, Bottle by Kristen Lapore, Fitzcardboardaldo by Robin Frohardt, Bounce Bounce by Hayley Morris, Random Lunacy by Papa Nutrino, Prey for the Eaten by Porknewyork, Harpoontang by Andrew Poneros, Reclaiming the Lost Kingdom of Laird by Duke Riley, Brastronaut by Salazar, Sea Chair by Studioswine, Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea by Swoon and Tashlich by Greg Wilson. The evening will also include a brief talk from artist Duke Riley and a short musical performance.

Tickets are free for members of the museum, and $10 for non-members.

The Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, call 631-283-2118 or visit parrishart.org.
