The Latest

Update: August 28, 2020

We are thrilled to bring our always-exciting program of films from around the world, post-screening Q&As, and exclusive talks in October 2020, and are committed to following the strict guidelines of the CDC and WHO.

Today we announced the first five films of the 2020 Festival, which will be a hybrid of Virtual Cinema and Drive-In screenings. Our Opening Night Film is the World Premiere of the historical yet timely documentary WITH DRAWN ARMS, directed by Glenn Kaino and Afshin Shahidi. You can read more about the five films here.

The HIFF28 Program Guide will be included in The East Hampton Star on September 17, and tickets will go on sale later that month, first to HIFF members and then to the general public. We will announce some sneak peeks of the program in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Please stay in touch via social media @HamptonsFilm, sign up for our weekly newsletter, and check the website regularly.

Wishing you all good health and safety.
