Attending the Hamptons International Film Festival
) is always an exciting experience - from the world class films that you watch months before the actual release to the chance to hear from and meet film industry veterans to its scenic location to the celeb sightings. So, what if along with winning tickets to this year's HIFF, you could also have the chance to enjoy a Film, Surf & Party weekend with Edward Norton
, Alec Baldwin
and Takuji Masuda?
- which was co-founded by Norton, who is being honored at HIFF with the Career Achievement Award - is offering that exact once in a lifetime
opportunity. The grand prize winner will be awarded roundtrip airfare for two to New York, a three night stay at a local hotel (for Friday, October 7th, Saturday, October 8th and Sunday, October 9th), a surf session with Norton, surf legend Takuji Masuda and other surf pros - and if surfing isn't your forte, don't fret because you'll have the chance to learn from some of the top pros, and two tickets to the Hamptons International Film Festival premiere of Bunker 77,
which was directed by Masuda. And, if that's not enough, you can chill with Norton, Masuda, Art Brewer, and C.R. Stecyk during the film's exclusive after party, and you'll also receive two tickets to the Hamptons International Film Festival dinner honoring Edward Norton, where you will sit at the same table as the honoree and Alec Baldwin.
So, how do you enter to win this one-of-a-kind prize? You donate $10 or more (every $10 donation is equal to a separate entry, so, $50 would get you five entries) to the HIFF Jr. Educational Initiative and The Eastern Long Island Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation via Crowdrise.
