The Hamptons Film Festival has selected “Love, Marilyn,” “Argo,” “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Not Fade Away” as featured films for the event that runs Oct. 4-Oct. 7 in the Long Island, N.Y. area.

“Love, Marilyn,” an intimate documentary on Marilyn Monroe, kicks off the four day event, and David Chase’s 1960s-set feature directing debut “Not Fade Away” will close the fest.

David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” which won the Toronto Film Fest’s audience award, screens Oct. 5. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star.

The centerpiece screening is Ben Affleck’s “Argo,” based on CIA Agent Tony Mendez and the rescue mission of Americans during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis.

“These films, with their range of styles and risk-taking creative choices, represent the pinnacle of what the festival has endeavored to achieve for the last 20 years,” said David Nugent, fest’s director of programming.
