In celebration of our silver anniversary, the Hamptons International Film Festival is honoring 25 years of film with a special screening series.

25 Years: 25 Films features films from each year of the Festival (1993-2016) at top cultural organizations in Palm Beach, NYC, LA, and across the South Fork. We are proud to revisit these keystone films, which trace the evolution of the Festival over 25 years.

Notable friends of the Festival, filmmakers and special guests will participate in exclusive talk-backs and Q&As following each screening. The 25th and final screening in the series will take place during the 25th Annual Film Festival in October.

“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. “While our hearts are in the Hamptons, our mission is to share great narratives and documentaries with our film-loving supporters everywhere.”

All of the films in the series have previously screened at the annual film Festival, including Oscar-winning films THE PIANOBLACK SWAN, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, STILL ALICE, THE ARTIST, THE COVE, and SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN. Oscar-nominated films include THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY, EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT, and I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO. Other critically acclaimed films such as OPEN WATER and HEAVENLY CREATURES will also screen. Dates for each screening are to be announced in the coming weeks.

“The festival has seen 25 years of unforgettable films from both first-time directors and recognized masters,” said HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent. “To look back on the works that made the festival so enticing is to recognize a quarter-century of incredible cinema.”

The 25th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival will take place over Columbus Day Weekend: October 5 – 9, 2017.
