Alan Alda To Receive The Dick Cavett Artistic Champion Award During Hamptons International Film Festival

Nicole Barylski

The Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) will honor Academy Award®-nominated and Golden Globe®-winning actor Alan Alda during the 26th annual HIFF. The seven-time Emmy® Award winner Alan Alda, whose accomplished resume spans 60 years, will receive The Dick Cavett Artistic Champion Award.

One of Alda's most notable roles was playing Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H and during his time on the classic TV series, in addition to acting he also penned many of the episodes. Alda also appeared on ER, The West Wing, 30 Rock, The Blacklist, The Big C, Horace and Pete, and The Good Fight.

"Alan Alda is one of those now rare actors who in his career continues to distinguish himself on Broadway, in films and on television," said HIFF Co-Chairman Alec Baldwin. "Of course, most people remember Alda for his starring role in the seminal TV series M*A*S*H, but Alda is also great in the movies and on stage."

On the big screen, Alda can be seen in Tower Heist, Wanderlust, Bridge of Spies - which closed out the 23rd Hamptons International Film Festival - Manhattan Murder Mystery, The Four Seasons, Sweet Liberty, A New Life, The Seduction of Joe Tynan - which he wrote - and many, many more. He has also been celebrated for his work on Broadway, earning Tony nominations for Glengarry Glen Ross, Jake's Women, and The Apple Tree.

Additionally, Alda served as the host of the award-winning PBS series Scientific American Frontiers for 11 years.

The 26th annual Hamptons International Film Festival will take place Thursday, October 4 through Monday, October 8.
