Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) has announced that it will welcome Artemis Rising Foundation as its Presenting Sponsor at this year’s festival. HIFF also announced that world-renowned painter Mary Heilmann has been selected as the featured poster artist. The 32nd annual festival will run from October 4 to 14.

Artemis Rising Foundation is a nonprofit organization and film production and television production company. Led by founder and CEO Regina K. Scully, Artemis Rising Foundation is dedicated to supporting media, film and education that transform culture and challenges the status quo. It champions powerful stories about important social justice issues like mental health, trauma recovery, addiction, sustainability and personal empowerment.

Scully has helped produce hundreds of the most impactful documentary films of the past two decades. These have affected meaningful changes to legislation and policy, education, corporate protocols and cultural norms across all sectors of society.

“This partnership will enhance our ability to create more opportunities and support filmmakers,” said HamptonsFilm Executive Director Anne Chaisson. “We are grateful to our board member Regina K. Scully and her Artemis Rising Foundation for recognizing the ongoing importance of film festivals and the art of filmmaking as a cultural hallmark of our times.”

“Now more than ever, we need to find, support, and highlight our gifted storytellers. Our stories define our culture. Through the lens of film and media, we evolve individually and collectively,” said Scully.

HamptonsFilm has also shared the poster art for the 2024 festival, continuing the 32-year tradition of featuring artwork from local artists. This year’s poster features the work of acclaimed artist Mary Heilmann’s 2014 piece “Maricopa Highway.”

A documentary on Heilmann’s life and career, Matt Creed’s “Mary Heilmann: Waves, Roads, and Hallucinations,” had its world premiere at the 2023 Hamptons International Film Festival and is scheduled to be released by Tribeca Films. HIFF will hold a screening of the documentary and unveil the new poster with Heilmann’s work at an event this summer in conjunction with The Parrish Art Museum.
