Some things never really change…they just keep getting better. Like The Annual Chairman’s Reception for The Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF), which Stuart Suna hosted for the 21st time in 26 years last week. The Chairman Emeriti opened his East Hampton estate to over 100 guests including Co-Chairs Alec Baldwin and Randy Mastro, Matthew Broderick, Emilio Estevez, Godless star Kayli Carter, directors Matthew Heineman, Michael Dwec, and Rory Kennedy.


Baldwin (introducing his dancing squad of children as the members of the band ABBA) thanked HIFF’s Executive Director Anne Chaisson, and Artistic Director David Nugent while telling Hamptons staples Judith Giuliani, Jerry Della Femina and Judy Licht, “I’m very proud to have such an eclectic mix of films this year.  But I’m also tired tonight, so all I have is clichés.”


Andrew Fox and Caroline Hirsch, who took a breather from her comedy club to debut the film Ask for Jane, chatted with ID Network’s Henry Schlieff about his festival entry Murder in Mansfield. Film critic Jeffery Wells, Michael and Marcy Warren, Danielle Englebardt, and Broadway producer Wendy Federman discussed their festival faves Green Book, Roma, and documentaries Maria by Callas, The Cat Rescuers, and Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes, which won in that category. Another pick was The Hate U Give, whose screenwriter Audrey Wells passed away unexpectedly on the Festival’s opening day.


The Festival, which screened 121 films, also hosted events at Baker House, Mulford Farm, Bay Street Theater, and Guild Hall that were attended by Maggie Gylenhall, Bob Balaban, and Alan Alda among others.


Baldwin discussed his role in The Public alongside co-star/writer/director Estevez. When he asked his daughter, who had just escaped mom Hilaria’s arms, “What did you think of your Daddy’s acting?” she replied by blowing a big wet raspberry into the mic.


It doesn’t get better than that.
