Swoon, Duke Riley & more present work at this fest that celebrates the nautical experience

The Maritime Film Festival was founded by esteemed sailor and artist, Andrew (PORK) Poneros, amongst others. In a broad sense, the annual festival aims to explore the human legacy of life and expedition on the water; moreover to celebrate the intrinsic romanticism of the nautical experience through various creative mediums. The primary goal is to create an international arena for artists and auteurs to share a deeper understanding and appreciation of mankind’s epic relationship with the sea. A number of initiatives are aimed at discovering and supporting the talent of the future. The MFF is a diverse, constantly evolving, and rapidly growing platform for the exhibition of creative inspiration that flows from the waters of the earth.

In collaboration with the visionaries at Pioneer Works, The Maritime Film Festival aims to celebrate Red Hook as a community and honor its astounding resilience in the face of natural disaster. A year after the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Sandy, Red Hook still stands as an alcove for artists and seafaring enthusiasts. New York City itself is one of the most fascinating histories ever written, and began as a manifold of maritime activities. The film festival is a marriage of oceanic and filmmaking pursuits, and could not be better suited for the historic harbor of Red Hook.
