Bruce Dern, Helena Bonham Carter Added to Hamptons Festival Lineup

Thesps to participate in public conversations, part of the fest's signature series of programming

Public conversations with Helena Bonham Carter and Bruce Dern plus a feature film award for Steven Bernstein’s Helen Hunt and Samantha Morton starrer “Decoding Annie Parker” are among the additions to the lineup of the 2013 Hamptons Intl. Film Festival, which also has set the roster for its competitive Golden Starfish Awards.

The conversation with Carter, who stars in HIFF-screening film “Burton and Taylor,” is set for Oct. 12 while Dern, whose conversation is skedded for Oct. 13, stars in the HIFF centerpiece pic “Nebraska.” Both events are part of the fest’s signature programs.

Meanwhile, “Decoding Annie Parker” — which stars Hunt, Morton and Aaron Paul in the true story of the discovery of the link between genetics and breast cancer — will score a $25,000 prize from HIFF and the Sloan Foundation, the non-profit that hands out kudos for science-themed works of art.

In addition, HIFF has lined up the slate for its upcoming series called  Films of Conflict and Resolution. Pics from Africa and the Middle East make up the majority of the lineup, with titles including Roger Ross Williams’ “God Loves Uganda,” Jehane Noujaim’s “The Square,” and Carlos Agullo’s “Plot for Peace.”

The fest has also locked in the films in the three competitive categories of its Golden Starfish Awards, setting five features each in the running for narrative and doc as well as some short film entries. Pics in the mix include Sebastien Betbeder’s “2 Autumns, 3 Winters,” Clio Barnard’s “The Selfish Giant” — both in their U.S. premieres — and the international bow of Liesbeth De Ceulaer’s “Behind the Redwood Curtain.”

The 21st annual HIFF runs Oct. 10-14.
