2017 was the first time our film series was entered into the Best of Long Island Film Festival competition. We won that year and for the next six years giving us the number one film festival for seven years in a row. Thanks to our enthusiastic audience and supporters for making us the BEST!

Dear Film Lovers,

Now that our 2023 Spring Series has ended, we would like to announce the winner of our 2023 Spring Series Audience Award. Although all the films received very high marks, the winner of our 2023 Spring Audience Award is the extremely entertaining IMMEDIATE FAMILY.


In honor of this win, the Port Jefferson Documentary Series has made a donation to Streetlights, the organization of the filmmaker’s choice. The mission of Streetlights is to assist talented and motivated young adult minorities, many economically and socially disadvantaged, to achieve long term economic stability and career success. Director of IMMEDIATE FAMILY, Denny Tedesco, stated that the reason for choosing this organization is that “Some of the kids I work with came through here.”

To find out more information about this wonderful, non-profit organization, please go to:

The Port Jefferson Documentary Series board is now working on choosing our films for the 2023 Fall Series. The new season will begin on Sept. 18th at Theatre Three in Port Jefferson. Check our website and social media for the announcement of the schedule of films, speakers and all dates.

See you in September!

Warmest regards,
The Film Board
