The 15th annual Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) began Wednesday night with a world premiere of Bob Balaban's Bernard and Doris, a study of the relation between tobaccco heiress Doris Duke and her butler. Made on a shoestring, or less, the film looks as rich as its subject, and features tremendous performances from Ralph Fiennes and, especially, Susan Sarandon as Doris Duke. Following the film, HIFF Founders, guests, filmmakers, premium audience ticket buyers, and people like me (press) crowded into Gurney's Inn for the grand Opening Night Party. Here are a few selected images from the first day and night of HIFF.
