The King's Speech

It’s that time of year again when cinephiles rejoice.  Filmmakers from all over the world are coming to present their films and have dialogues with audiences.  It’s like a history lesson, current events update, cultural education and emotional roller coaster all in one.  This year is the biggest yet so take the time to peruse all the movie and special event offerings  Conversations With include Stanley Tucci, Isabella Rosselini, James Franco, and Julian Schnabel.  While it is a treat to see some of the biggest stars and directors from Hollywood the real gem of this film festival is discovering the new talent on the rise.  Often these films go on to win Academy Awards, especially in the foreign film category.  The Breakthrough Performers program also brings in young actors from all over the world to mentor them and you get the chance to meet them before they become the fodder for magazine covers. 

Most of all, the filmmakers are passionate and have dedicated themselves to their labors of love.  You get to interact with them front and center.

You can order tickets on line at or go to the box office which is located in Design Within Reach in East Hampton (in the parking lot behind Main Street).  Check the website for hours.  Go early because many films do sell out in terms of purchased tickets.

Your insider tip:  Buy packages or passes so that way your party tickets are included with your film tickets.  The best VIP way to attend is to purchase a Founders Pass for $1200 which gets you into all films in advance for special seating and invitations to special events.

Also arrive at the theater well in advance of the screening times to get a good seat.  These are going to be full houses with all the amazing films and talent present.
