Emily Blunt, Killer Films to Be Honored at Hamptons Film Festival Awards Dinner

The Hamptons International Film Festival will launch a new annual awards dinner with an inaugural event honoring actress Emily Blunt, 20-year-old independent film production company Killer Films, the late documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles and HIFF board chair Stuart Match Suna.

As part of the dinner, Blunt will receive the Variety Creative Impact in Acting Award. A decade ago Blunt was featured as one of HIFF’s rising stars for “Gideon’s Daughter,” in a performance that won her a Golden Globe. Her work has included “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Into the Woods” and the upcoming “Sicario.”

Also to be honored at the dinner are Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler, who co-founded Killer Films in 1995 and have produced a string of indie buzzmagnet titles including upcoming fall release “Carol” as well as “Still Alice,” “Far From Heaven,” “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Kids.”

Rounding out the awards slate for the evening are Maysles, the documentarian (“Grey Gardens,” “Gimme Shelter”) who died in March, and Suna, receiving the tribute for his 18 years as the festival’s board chair.

The dinner, set for Oct. 11, takes place during the 23rd edition of HIFF, which runs Oct. 8-12. Proceeds from the event will benefit the fest’s year-round programming, including the Screenwriters’ Lab and the SummerDocs series.

The 23rd festival opens with Dan Rathor Memogate drama “Truth.”
