As summer begins to come to a close, it's time to start thinking about all the wonders of fall, from East End festivals to pumpkin spice lattes to the Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF), which recently announced that the festival's 25th Anniversary Sunday Centerpiece will feature the U.S. premiere of Breathe, Andy Serkis' directorial debut, starring Oscar®-nominated actor Andrew Garfield and Golden Globe-winning and Emmy®-nominated actress Claire Foy.

"Celebrating a quarter century of bringing international films and filmmakers to the East End, HIFF is thrilled to announce the unique and dynamic voices that will be presented for our anniversary edition," shared Hamptons International Film Festival Executive Director Anne Chaisson. "David and our programming team have worked tirelessly to select this year's best."

Rob Reiner's LBJ, the upcoming drama starring Woody Harrelson as President Lyndon Johnson, will also screen at the festival and Reiner will take part in the "A Conversation With..." series.

The 2017 HIFF will also include viewings of Vincent Gagliostro's After Louie, starring Alan Cumming as an artist and activist from ACT UP with survivor's guilt following the AIDS epidemic, and Alexandre Moors' The Yellow Birds, which follows two soldiers finding their way during the Iraq War. The film stars Toni Collette, Jennifer Aniston, Tye Sheridan and Alden Ehrenreich. Both Cumming and Collette will attend this year's festival.

"This first group of films display works that both explore the complexities of our world and some of the challenges we face, while also highlighting the resilience of the human spirit in facing such adversity," added Hamptons International Film Festival Artistic Director David Nugent.

Ai Weiwei's Human Flow is among featured films.


Additionally, HIFF will highlight Ai Weiwei's Human Flow, a documentary that explores the global migrant crisis, which was the recipient of the Palme D'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, Ruben Östlund's The Square, a fictional story about the art world starring Elisabeth Moss, Claes Bang and Dominic West, and the U.S. premiere of Atsuko Hirayanagi's Oh Lucy!

The 25th annual Hamptons International Film Festival will be held Thursday, October 5 through Monday, October 9. Founders Passes will be available starting Tuesday, September 5.
