We couldn’t be more psyched about this year’s Montauk Film Festival. Taking place all over Montauk from the 21st to the 31st of July, 2022, this third iteration of the annual fest has quickly become a staple of summer out east for us.

There’s four categories of films in this year’s festival: Environmental, Social & Cultural Documentary, Surf & Turf, and Community. The films selected to compete vary wildly in both subject and format, and yet, are united by a place in contemporary culture that’s just so at home in the spirit of today’s Montauk.

DRL's Montauk Film Festival Selects

Be A Part Of It

We’re still fascinated by the Montauk-Rincón connection. From the east end of Long Island to the northwest coast of Puerto Rico, there’s a special bond between these two places, and any film shot there is going to find an appreciation for the familiar in Montauk. Also, taking up surfing later in life is a cause a lot of us espouse, because surfing is for everybody.

Fish & Men

This one’s special for a very particular reason. One of us here at DRL has a late-onset allergy to fish, brought about (per the doctors) from years of eating cheap sushi. So, we know all too well that there’s something not quite right about the fish industry. We’re curious, perhaps morbidly so, to see what we’ll learn here.

Devil Put The Coal In The Ground

No film festival would be complete without something absolutely gut-wrenching, and a look at what’s going on in places like West Virginia, comfortably out-of-sight from our little lives in the Hamptons, might be just the wake-up call we need.
