Hamptons International Film Festival To Celebrate 25 Years With 25 Film Screenings

author on Feb 9, 2017

The Hamptons International Film Festival’s celebration of its 25th year will be spread out over several months and two coasts, leading up to the festival weekend itself in October.

HIFF has picked out one film from each year that the annual festival has been in existence, and will hold 25 film screenings throughout the Hamptons, New York City, Los Angeles and Palm Beach. The first “25 Years: 25 Films” screening in the series will be Friday, February 17, at 6 p.m. at Guild Hall in East Hampton with “The Piano” from 1993. The second stop is Palm Beach on February 23 with “Black Swan” from 2010. Many events in the series will include conversations with filmmakers, friends of HIFF and special guests, and the last event will include a lifetime achievement award presentation.

“We thought this would be a great opportunity to bring some of the best films of the last 25 years to moviegoers around the country,” said HIFF executive director Anne Chaisson in a statement. “While our hearts are in the Hamptons, our mission is to share great narratives and documentaries with our film-loving supporters everywhere.”

Also among the acclaimed films coming up in the series are “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Still Alice,” “The Artist,” “The Cove,” “Searching for Sugarman,” “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” “Embrace of the Serpent” and “I Am Not Your Negro.” Dates and locations are forthcoming.

Tickets are $15 to the Guild Hall screening of “The Piano.” Visit guildhall.org or call 631-324-0806.

The 25th annual festival will be on October 5 through 9 in East Hampton and elsewhere on the South Fork.
