The Hamptons International Film Festival’s “A Conversation With ...” series will welcome Edward Norton, Aaron Eckhart and Holly Hunter to East Hampton during the 24th annual festival October 6 to 10.

Three-time Oscar nominee Mr. Norton will be honored with HIFF’s career achievement award at a dinner during the festival weekend, and on Sunday, October 9, at 1 p.m. at East Hampton Middle School, he will be the subject of “A Conversation With ...”

The events typically begin with a screening of clips from the subject’s career—in Mr. Norton’s case, expect clips from “Fight Club,” “Primal Fear,” “25th Hour,” “American History X” and “Birdman”—followed by an interview and a chance for questions from the audience.

Mr. Norton’s upcoming film is “Collateral Beauty,” directed by David Frankel and co-starring Will Smith, Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley and Helen Mirren.

Ms. Hunter, who won a Golden Globe and an Oscar for her performance in “The Piano,” will have her conversation on Saturday, October 8, at 1 p.m. at East Hampton Middle School.

She was also Oscar-nominated for “Broadcast News,” “The Firm” and “Thirteen,” and she won Emmys for “The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom” and “Roe vs. Wade.”

Ms. Hunter will be seen next in director Katherine Dieckmann’s “Strange Weather,” which will have its U.S. premiere as the festival’s Southampton opening night film on Friday, October 7.

Mr. Eckhart will appear Friday, October 7, at 1 p.m. at Guild Hall in East Hampton.

Among his notable credits are Harvey Dent in “The Dark Knight,” the president in “Olympus Has Fallen” and its sequel, and a tobacco lobbyist in “Thank You for Smoking.”

He stars as boxing trainer Kevin Rooney in Ben Younger’s “Bleed for This,” one of HIFF’s Spotlight Films screenings, with Miles Teller.
