Offshore Art & Film will return for a second season this weekend in Montauk. An art show by day and a film festival at sundown, its program includes speakers and filmmaker panels.

The festival starts Friday at Lucore Art Gallery with a party from 7 to 10 p.m. that will feature screenings of films and unreleased television pilots. To be shown are "The Rolling East" directed by Ben Potter, "Triggered" by Tara Westwood, "Forty Minutes" by Vlad Pavlov, and "Hit Man: Secrets of Lies," which is directed by Elias Plagianos and stars Richard Kind, who has been an active supporter of arts organizations here such as Bay Street Theater. Following the "Hit Man" screening there will be a discussion with the filmmaker and cast.

The Hero Beach Club will be the site of Saturday's lineup. A show and discussion of aerial photographs by Joanna Steidle and photos by John Madere and Jarrett Steil will start off the day's schedule at 3 p.m. The discussion, which takes place at 5, will be moderated by Ryan Sherman, who is the host of the "Highly Educated" podcast.

At 6, Emily Anderson, a director, will moderate a talk called "Forging a Creative Career in the Ever-Changing Media Landscape." On the panel will be Kelcey Edwards, a filmmaker and curator; Mashonda Tifrere, an author and curator; Jessica Peavy, an artist and filmmaker, and Caitlyn Moran and Abigail Klauz, filmmakers who are recent Hofstra graduates. 

Saturday's film screenings begin at 7 and include an experimental art film by Nicolas P. Villarreal, a comedic short by Jerah Milligan and one from Amy Yasmine Omar, Mr. Madere's documentary short "Rocco Up," a surfing feature by Mikey Corker, a short documentary by Samantha Sanders, and a few student films.
