Now that we’re slowly starting to accept that summer is officially over, at least according to the calendar, we’re ready to look forward and start planning our schedules for the 17th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival. And what a schedule it’s going to be! This year’s line-up of films and stars is shaping up to be one of the best yet.
Sharon Stone has already been confirmed as one of the A-List guests that will be attending this year’s festival. Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor will be her first stop where she’ll be the guest of honor in the festival’s long running series, “A Conversation With…” on October 11th. HIFF’s highly praised Breakthrough Performers Program will also welcome Stone as this year’s mentor, an honor that the actress and activist was grateful to accept. “This is a great tradition,” Stone said of the program, “and I am humbled to be in the company of those who have mentored in the program before me, like Robert Altman and Gena Rowlands.”
