Hamptons International Film Festival Announces 2016 SummerDocs Lineup

The Hamptons International Film Festival SummerDocs series has set a 2016 lineup that includes “Author: The JT Leroy Story,” “Betting on Zero” and “A Perfect Candidate.” The series will also feature co-chairman Alec Baldwin and the festival’s artistic director, David Nugent, leading conversations with filmmakers and guests. Screenings will take place at Guild Hall in East Hampton.

Amazon Studios picked up A&E IndieFilm’s literary scandal documentary “Author” out of Sundance earlier this year. “Betting on Zero,” about a crusade against alleged pyramid scheme Herbalife, premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, while R.J. Cutler and David Van Taylor’s look at Oliver North, “A Perfect Candidate,” was first released in 1996.

In the past, SummerDocs selections “Twenty Feet From Stardom,” “Last Days of Vietnam,” “The Cove,” Searching for Sugar Man” and “How to Survive a Plague” have gone on to receive Oscar nominations.

“The SummerDocs series has become one of the most anticipated and respected film events in the New York and Hamptons summer calendar,” said Baldwin. “We are proud to once again screen some of the best in documentary filmmaking to our audiences and provide an insightful look into the process in conversations with leading filmmakers.”

The festival’s Student Summer Filmmaking workshops are also open for enrollment and will also be held at Guild Hall July 18-22 and July 25-29. The festival is also partnering with Southampton Arts Center and offering free movie screenings through the summer, which include “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” “Surf’s Up,” Rocky,” “The Candidate,” “The Shining,” “To Catch a Thief,” “Tootsie” and “Jaws.”

The Hamptons International Film Festival runs from Oct 6-10.
