Hello Darlings, Welcome Back To Cognac's Corner Magazine
This year the 24th Hamptons International Film Festival took place from Thursday October 6th through October 10, 2016.
The Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) is a year-round 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Each year the Hamptons International Film Festival features events, screenings, film workshops, comprehensive summer programs and an annual film festival in 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. The Hamptons International Film Festival presents cash and in-kind prizes handed out totaling more than $165,000. HIFF continues to attract some of the best films of the year. Selections from all of their programs continue to play an important role during awards season. 2015 marked the 7th time in the last 8 years that a film at 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.
This year I had the pleasure of interviewing Actor Alec Baldwin who is on the board and is a big supporter of the Hamptons International Film Festival.
Actor Alec Baldwin reveals, "Created in 1993, the Hamptons International Film Festival has grown significantly since I was introduced to it a few years back. I had always shunned such programming out on the East End as being too duplicative of what could be found easily in New York. A few years ago, however, I bought a pass….and I was hooked.
