Hamptons International Film Festival

East Hampton, New York / October 4-8, 2018 / hamptonsfilmfest.org / A, S, P

As long as you’re there to compete, moviemakers fly and shack up at Hamptons International Film Festival free of charge. The incentive to do so is through the roof: All of the festival’s awards (with the exception of audience-scored categories) include cash prizes or a film production package of in-kind goods and services, totaling $180,000, and winners in both the narrative and documentary short categories qualify for Academy consideration. (HIFF’s 25th edition saw a record-breaking 47 Oscar noms issued to attending moviemakers in 2017.) The fest’s clout with the New York Film Critics Circle also ensures that influential press outlets have their eyes fixed on the high-stakes action.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.
