Our 29th Year
HamptonsFilm, a non-profit founded in 1992, established as one of the most influential film festivals around the globe, has offered year-round screenings, talks and educational programs since its inception.
HamptonsFilm was founded in 1992 to celebrate the art of film and to introduce a unique and varied spectrum of international films and filmmakers to our audiences with an annual film festival each October. A non-profit organization with year-round screenings of global narrative and documentary films, a screenwriters lab, and extensive educational initiatives, HamptonsFilm produces programs that enlighten, educate, and provide invaluable exposure for filmmakers, while also providing the East End of Long Island
with an educational and cultural experience that enriches the lives of its citizens and contributes to the local economy. The annual film festival, the premier film event on New York State’s East End, and recently referred to by Variety as “one of America’s most glamorous displays of the best in cutting-edge cinema,” continues to play an important role during awards season, with a significant number of titles highlighted every year at the Academy Awards.
