The Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) has announced Waves as the closing night film, directed by Trey Edward Shults. The film explores the lives of a suburban African-American family as they navigate life following a tragic loss. Award-winning and nominated actors in Waves include Sterling K. Brown, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Lucas Hedges, Taylor Russell, and Alexa Demie.

"We are elated to conclude our festival with Trey Edward Shults' Waves, a beautiful drama of a family's love that will absolutely mesmerize our audiences," said David Nugent, Artistic Director of the Hamptons International Film Festival.

Waves takes place in the lush landscape of South Florida and features a family led by a well-intentioned father that comes across as domineering. The family navigates love, forgiveness, and bonding after a tragic loss. Waves is a heart-warming story about the universal capacity for compassion and growth even in the darkest of times.

The Festival will continue its eighteen-year tradition of recognizing up and coming talent through its annual Breakthrough Artists signature program. This year's recipients include actress Camila Morrone of Mickey and the Bear, which will screen in the World Cinema Narrative section, actor Aldis Hodge from Clemency, previously announced in this year's Spotlight section, and Lulu Wang, director of the summer indie darling The Farewell.

"And with our Breakthrough Artist signature program, we are pleased to recognize the talent of Camila Morrone, Aldis Hodge, and Lulu Wang, three artists whose work on the screen has been stunning," Nugent added.

HIFF has honored distinguished talent in early stages of their careers since 2002, including award-winning actors Emily Blunt, Brie Larson, Adam Driver, Jessica Chastain, Mahershala Ali, Riz Ahmed, Alicia Vikander, Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Stone, Elisabeth Moss, Rooney Mara, Oscar Isaac, and more.

Ticket packages for the 2019 Festival are now on sale, and individual tickets will go on sale on October 1. This year's festival guide will be available online on September 17.

The 27th annual Hamptons International Film Festival will take place Columbus Day Weekend (October 10 through October 14).
