Hamptons’ worldly view

15 world preems in lineup for film fest's 14th year

The Hamptons Intl. Film Festival, running Oct. 18-22, boasts 15 world premieres in the lineup for its 14th year.

Bookending the fest are the world premiere of Philip Haas’ “The Situation” and the East Coast preem of the Billy Bob Thornton starrer “The Astronaut Farmer” directed by Mike Polish that WB will release in early 2007.

Six features will vie for the fest’s top prize, the Golden Starfish Award, including the world premiere of Brad Gann’s “Black Irish” and the U.S. bows of Jen Lien’s “The Bothersome Man” and Rajnesh Domalpalli’s “Vanaja.”

The weeklong event will also screen Darren Aronofsky’s “The Fountain,” Marc Forster’s “Stranger Than Fiction” and IFC Films’ “Requiem.”

Fest plans to honor “The Fountain” star Ellen Burstyn with its career achievement in acting award and This Is That founder Ted Hope with the third annual Hamptons/IndieWire “Industry Toast.” Last year’s recipient was Picturehouse head Bob Berney.
