HIFF 2010 WITH PARTY PIX & RED CARPET SNAPSHOTS!






Alec Baldwin
At the Chairman's Party
Hamptons International Film Festival 2010
Alec Baldwin must be at least three people. He's announcing concerts, interviewing other actors onstage, and going to parties in the Hamptons.
And he was live (on 10/14) on 30 Rock, as well.

30 Rock Live was hilarious (10/14 8:30 NY time). I gather they did it again, live, for the West Coast -- That was Thursday, October 14, whatever time they do it live in California. (Hope you watched it!)

Alec Baldwin seems ubiquitous at HIFF... so he's at the top of this guide to stories about HIFF 2010. We'll be adding to this directory of articles as we process the photos and write the stories...

Here's some of what's still coming:
Interviews with Jane Goodall and others...Notes on films, including...=>Barney's Version
=>The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
=>The Debt
=>Sweet Evil

LOVE, ETC.

Jill is the charming and charismatic director of the Audience Award Documentary LOVE, ETC which follows a handful of couples through some critical periods of their love lives. Filmed with great sophistication and insight, the stories evolve and diverge in unexpected ways.

Mr. & Mrs. Jonathan Tisch
LOVE, ETC.

Observing the diversity of couples around them when they were married provided the impetus for Jonathan to produce this (bittersweet) chronicle of love stories. (If the name sounds familiar, Jonathan's day job is CEO of Loews. His uncle, Larry, was CEO of CBS.)

Believe it or not, Salt (Angelina Jolie) was not at CIA headquarters and elsewhere in the world making SALT. She was (conspiracy theorists claim) actually at Grumman Studios.

PARTIES, PRESS, CONNECTIONS

Though this videographer and his on-camera partner interviewing Jessica Chastain on the Red Carpet for THE DEBT may have been among the youngest working press, as far as I could see and hear, they were doing a top notch job.

Rula Jebreal and Freida Pinto
MIRAL

Rula, the screenwriter (and author of the source novel) for MIRAL had the best line of the festival. A reporter (for a major magazine, though arguably less professional than the previous interviewer) asked Freida what she was wearing. Rula replied: "She's wearing me."

Stanley Tucci with young partygoers

Stanley Tucci (first name only just seems wrong, here) was very friendly and approachable. Seems quite different from the characters he's played recently... OMG, he was acting.

Stanley (well, it still seems wrong but I'll do it anyway) directed LEND ME A TENOR last year on Broadway. He's currently developing MOMMY AND ME with Meryl Streep (Mommy) and Tina Fey (Me), which he is planning to direct. It will be the fifth film he has directed, the last being BLIND DATE in 2008.
Happy Birthday, Stanley! (He turns 50 on November 11.)

Striking new talents, actress Robin Singer and actress/singer/songwriter Mikal Evans starred in the provocative sell-out indie feature KISSES, CHLOE. Robin will soon be seen in two comic web series, and Mikal performs solo and with her band frequently in New York. Her next show will be with the full band, November 11th, 9pm @RockwoodMusicHall. (Perhaps she'll sing Happy Birthday for Stanley Tucci? -- See previous item.)
