Alec Baldwin will lead conversations with filmmakers for The Hamptons International Film Festival’s SummerDocs series. Now in its 10th year, the series brings entertaining and engaging documentary filmmaking and storytellers to the East End.
This year HIFF will kick off with a screening of HBO’s Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind on Friday, June 29, at 7 PM, followed by Bathtubs Over Broadway on Saturday, July 21, at 7 PM, and conclude with Chef Flynn on Saturday, August 25, at 7 PM.
“We are excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our SummerDocs series with three dynamic films covering a variety of topics, including a legendary actor, forgotten Broadway musicals, and a culinary prodigy,” said Baldwin, HIFF’s Co-Chairman and SummerDocs series presenter.
“Over the last decade, we have captivated audiences with some of the most incredible storytelling and know that our 10th anniversary continues that tradition,” he continued.
Following the screenings, Baldwin and HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent will lead conversations with filmmakers and subjects, including Marina Zenovich, director of Robin Williams, Dava Whisenant, director of Bathtub, and Cameron Yates, director of Chef Flynn, along with the film’s subject, celebrated chef Flynn McGarry.
“Between our SummerDocs program and the outdoor Summer of Spielberg program at the Southampton Arts Center, our audiences will have much to choose from,” said Nugent.
Tickets for the screenings are available for purchase at the Hamptons International Film Festival website, www.hamptonsfilmfest.org.
