The Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) has announced the titles screening in several sections of the festival’s programming, including Spotlight, World Cinema and Views from Long Island.

Damien Chazelle’s highly-acclaimed “La La Land,” which has already seen success at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals, is among the movies on the Spotlight slate. Other Spotlight Films include Jordan Roberts’ “Burn Your Maps,” Garth Davis’ “Lion” and Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight,” among others.

“Over Columbus Day Weekend in a spectacular setting, we offer five full days of films for our impassioned audience, including dozens of premieres as well as the breakout hits and award winners from the Sundance, Berlin, Cannes, and Toronto Film Festivals,” said HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent. “From the dazzling choreography of ‘La La Land,’ the quiet beauty of ‘Moonlight,’ to the belly laughs of ‘Toni Erdmann,’ our audiences will see the films that are sure to be counted amongst the most celebrated films of the year.”

As part of the Views From Long Island section, HIFF will premiere the first two episodes of A&E’s new documentary series “The Killing Season” Oct. 9., concluding with a discussion with the filmmakers.

The 24th Hamptons International Film Festival runs Oct. 6-10 with 68 features and 58 shorts, representing 32 countries. A list of additions to the 2016 HIFF lineup follows.
