Since its inception in 2009, SummerDocs, a series of highly-anticipated documentary films, has become one of the Hamptons International Film Festival’s signature events. Following each screening, the director and/or subject(s) of the film participates in a lively and engaging Q&A with HIFF board member Alec Baldwin, who co-curates the series with HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of the conversation—past SummerDocs selections, such as Twenty Feet From Stardom, Last Days of VietnamThe Cove, Searching for Sugar Man, and How to Survive a Plague, have gone on to receive Academy Award wins and nominations.
