HIFF 2018: Opening Night Slideshow

What a wonderful night of celebrations at the Opening Night of the 2018 Hamptons International Film Festival!

We kicked off the evening with a reception honoring Alan Alda, the 2018 recipient of the Dick Cavett Artistic Champion Award, at The Baker House 1650, followed by the presentation of the award by Alec Baldwin on stage at Guild Hall of East Hampton.

Actor/producer Maggie Gyllenhaal and director Sara Colangelo then presented the East Coast Premiere of THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER (encore Saturday), our Opening Night film, sponsored by Delta Air Lines and ALTOUR.

The evening ended with a lovely party among the vineyards at Wölffer Estate Vineyard.

And now we’re ready to continue with four more days of films and conversations. We hope you’re along for the ride!
