Sag Harbor, NY – Sag Harbor Cinema announces two brand new Sag Harbor Stories just in time for Harborfest. The beloved, original series of short documentary portraits highlighting members of the local community will screen September 15th and 16th at the Cinema. Two new stories, “starring” Rabbi Daniel Geffen of Temple Adas Israel and Romany Kramoris, owner of Kramoris Gallery, will be presented for the first time, together with the others, for a total of ten shorts.

For those who wish to get the full cinematic experience, SHC will open at 10 am to exhibit the Stories on its biggest screen, Theater 1, free of charge. After public screenings begin at 1pm, the Stories will move to the Cinema’ s outdoor vitrines on Main Street.

Sag Harbor Stories have featured a wide variety of residents and businesses including:

Nada Barry, Owner of The Wharf Shop
Sister Ann Marino, Director of Cormaria Retreat House
Greg Miller, Owner of Greg’s Garage
Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook, Former US Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Kathryth Szoka and Maryann Calandrille, Owners of Canio’s Books
Lester Ware, Personal Trainer and Owner of Personal Best
Michael Heller, former photographer for the Sag Harbor Express
Jack Tagliasacchi, Owner of Il Cappuccino Restaurant

The Sag Harbor Stories shorts are typically presented individually, as part of the pre-show that runs before all films shown at the Cinema, year round. This cinematic gallery of local portraits was conceived to celebrate some of the unique experiences that make Sag Harbor such a special place. The Stories are intended both to strengthen community ties and to encourage a new appreciation for Sag Harbor in non-residents. 


Sag Harbor Stories are directed and edited by Sam Hamilton, with cinematography by Julian Alvarez.

The series’ Executive Producer is William N. Collage.
