"The SummerDocs series has been a tremendous success for HIFF and our patrons," said series presenter Alec Baldwin. "The program brings the best in documentary film to Guild Hall during the summertime, when film fans are craving some serious subjects."

Presented by TNT's Public Morals, the Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) SummerDocs series returns for its 7th year to present the best in documentary filmmaking.

The series will open with "Best of Enemies" on Saturday, July 11th, followed by "Listen to Me Marlon" on Saturday, August 1st, and the final summer screening is "Peace Officer" on Friday, August 28th.

Following the screening of "Best of Enemies," directors Robert Gordon and Academy Award winner Morgan Neville will be joined by Dick Cavett for a conversation led by novelist and radio host Kurt Andersen. Alec Baldwin will lead conversations for "Listen to Me Marlon" with director Stevan Riley as well as "Peace Officer" with writers-directors Brad Barber and Scott Christopherson.

"We have a provocative and engaging slate for our seventh year that truly exemplifies the high caliber filmmaking that we value at HIFF," said HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent. "The SummerDocs series continues to be a highly-anticipated mainstay of our programming initiatives, screening award-winning documentaries each year to our audience."

Candescent Films will return to sponsor the Audience Award for the 2015 SummerDocs series. Founded by Lilly Hartley, Candescent Films produces and finances social issue films that have the power to ignite conversation and create change.

In addition, for the third year in a row, the Hamptons International Film Festival is partnering with the Southampton Arts Center to offer free screenings of classic movies throughout the summer. The complete schedule can be found at www.hamptonsfilmfest.org.
