A "rival" film-arts-music festival opens tonight in Amagansett at Neoteric Fine Art. The first-time festival is geared to draw attention to the creative talents of those who call the East End home.
Another mini-film event takes place in Bridgehampton tomorrow at 8 p.m. at "The Bridge." The one-hour screening presents three shorts by area directors.
