ABOUT THE HAMPTONS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
The Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) is a year-round 501(c)3 non-profit organization with events, screenings, film workshops, comprehensive summer programs and an annual film festival each October. The Festival is the premiere film event on New York State’s east end, and is an intimate showcase of some of the year’s best offerings in contemporary cinema from around the world. With cash and in-kind prizes handed out totaling more than $225,000, HIFF continues to attract some of the best films of the year. Selections from all of our programs continue to play an important role during awards season. 2016 marked the 6th time in a row that a film in the Festival has become the eventual Best Picture winner at the Oscars, making HIFF the only Festival on the East Coast with such a distinction. HIFF collaborates throughout the year with arts organizations both on Long Island, and in New York City. In recent years, HIFF’s SummerDocs program at Guild Hall, hosted by Alec Baldwin, has become a highlight of the summer season in the Hamptons. Other recent collaborations with other non-profit institutions include Southampton Arts Center and MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art).
