HIFF ran from October 6–10 and played more than 125 films from around the world.
“We would like to thank all of the filmmakers whose fantastic films screened at the festival this year. It is incredibly difficult to award only a handful of films after a five-day festival of engaging content. Congratulations to the Audience Award winners that stood out to our filmgoers amongst the best this year had to offer,” HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent said
Additional HIFF awards were also handed out yesterday in East Hampton. They can be seen here.
