The Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) has long been honoring young talent at special events during the Festival.
For many years, along with inviting great American actors such as Kate and Mara Rooney, and Emmy Rossum, they partnered with European Film Promotions (EFP), and had some of the leading young European actors, such as Alicia Vikander from Sweden, come to HIFF,. More recently, they have partnered with Variety to bring honorees of Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch to HIFF.
Here’s Academy Award winner Brie Larsen, one of Variety’s honorees in 2013, at HIFF a few years ago. (In 3D – best to watch with Daydream! Or Cardboard!)
