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 four competitive categories in narrative feature, documentary feature, narrative short film, documentary short film, and programs in seven non-competitive categories, the Hamptons International Film Festival seeks diverse films made by filmmakers who traverse the globe in order to tell their stories through different cultural styles and experiences.
HIFF bestows Audience Awards. A $10,000 award from the Zicherman Family Foundation will be presented to an early-career screenwriter who has demonstrated singular vision and dedication to their craft. This award seeks to both celebrate their current work, as well as encourage the development of future projects. HIFF offers over $165,000 in cash and in-kind awards.
The winners of two of HIFF’s short film competition programs—Best Narrative Short and Best Documentary Short—will automatically qualify for the Academy Awards® without a standard theatrical run, provided they meet all other Academy requirements.
