In the years since its inception, HamptonsFilm has developed a time-honored tradition of honoring professionals in the entertainment industry, including filmmakers, actors, and industry insiders.

Alec Baldwin presents Dick Cavett with the inaugural Dick Cavett Artistic Champion Award.

The Dick Cavett Artistic Champion Award was created in 2017 by then Co-Chairman of the Board Alec Baldwin, and first given to its namesake, Dick Cavett. The award honors those in the creative arts who not only excel in their field, but who also support the arts and artists, in other fields such as education, related media, and other arts disciplines.

Previous recipients of The Dick Cavett Artistic Champion Award include Mr. Cavett; Alan Alda, actor, writer and director, plus founder of the World Science Festival, a visiting professor at Stony Brook University’s Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, which he helped found; and Toni Ross, founder of the Hamptons International Film Festival, artist, restauranteur, and founder of the Wesleyan Cinema Archives and founder of the Hayground School in Bridgehampton, where diversity, removing barriers and arts and culinary education are paramount.
