HIFF31: Saturday Slideshow

Saturday was a terrific day, with events and films and conversations and parties across East Hampton, Sag Harbor and Southampton!

Saturday was a beautiful day for cinema & storytelling!

It was also a big day for premieres. We were thrilled to have the World Premiere of I’LL BE RIGHT THERE, which was attended by Director Brendan Walsh, Executive Producer Jesse Eisenberg, Writer Jim Beggarly, and Producers Bradley Ross, Peter Block and Ross Meyerson; STORY & PICTURES BY, attended by Director Joanna Rudnick, Producer Tim Horsburgh, and film subject Christian Robinson; and TELL THEM YOU LOVE ME, attended by Director Nick August-Perna, and Producers Tamara Rosenburg and Andrea DeBrito.

And North American Premieres CHUCK CHUCK BABY, attended by Producers Anne Beresford and Peggy Cafferty, and EX-HUSBANDS, attended by Director Noah Pritzker and Actors Griffin Dunne, Miles Heizer and Rosanna Arquette.

Another very exciting Saturday highlight was Spotlight Film FRESH KILLS, which marks the first Writer/Director credit for Jennifer Esposito – massive CONGRATULATIONS from us on such an incredible debut feature!

Thank you to Sag Harbor Cinema for hosting a perfect little salute to the mega-talented filmmakers, without whom we would have no festival at all – we are so happy to have all of these creatives celebrating their accomplishments with us here in the Hamptons! Today is bound to be just as terrific – what films are you excited to see?!
