Air, Land + Sea

The Serengeti Rules: Hugh Campbell + Peter Kragh

Upcoming Events

Join AIR, LAND + SEA for monthly Wednesday dinners at Tutto Il Giorno during the winter of 2019-2020: December 18, January 15, and February 12.

HamptonsFilm will curate a selection of films, with each screening followed by a panel of participants who will address the issues in the films. Tutto il Giorno will serve dinner and drinks to complement the screening.

Founded in 2016 with the goal to generate awareness around man-made environmental issues, our year-round Air, Land + Sea series screens films with the goal to generate awareness around man-made environmental issues, foster a deeper appreciation for our planet, and allow filmmakers and experts to share information and discuss solutions to the global problems which we face today.

Whether at the annual festival in the fall or at exclusive screenings and events throughout the year, Air, Land + Sea selections take filmgoers on a journey of environmental appreciation and awareness. This journey continues with post-screening Q+As that dive deep into the issues depicted on screen.

Experience Air, Land + Sea at HIFF27 with these selections: EARTH, FLINT, THE HOTTEST AUGUST, and our Air, Land & Sea Shorts program.

In past years we’ve shared breathtaking and awe-inspiring odes to our planet like EARTH: ONE AMAZING DAY, and BEFORE THE FLOOD; films that explore the effects of manmade toxic waste in GRIT and FROM THE ASHES; to ecological challenges on the world’s animals in SONIC SEA and THE SERENGETI RULES, these documentaries take audiences on a journey of environmental appreciation and awareness.

This screening series continues all year long, creating citizen scientists who address the issues we face on the East End every day. Join as a member today; your membership will include various perks throughout the year.

Where the air, land and sea lure prominent visitors from around the world, and our local residents feel nothing short of devout passion for our waters—HamptonsFilm is perfectly poised to bring attention to global issues of environmental conservation.

Past year-round events have taken place at locations throughout the East End.

August 2018
A screening at the Summer Studio at Madoo Conservancy
After completing a feature documentary on New York’s High Line, award-winning filmmaker Thomas Piper met the inspirational designer and plantsman, Piet Oudolf, and the idea for a new project was born. FIVE SEASONS: THE GARDENS OF PIET OUDOLF immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.
Followed by a talk with Edwina von Gal (Founder, PRFCT Earth Project), and Thomas Piper and Declan Blackmore (Summerhill Landscapes).

Air, Land + Sea began from an idea brought to us by Nicole Delma. Air, Land + Sea is made possible, in part, by the generous contribution of Susan and David Rockefeller. To get involved, please contact Amy Levin
