LA LA LAND, directed by Damien Chazelle, took home the Audience Award for Narrative Feature. Magnolia Pictures’ I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO directed by Raoul Peck, took home the Audience Award for Documentary Feature at the Hamptons International Film Festival.
Netflix’s THE WHITE HELMETS, directed by Orlando von Einsiedel, won the Audience Award for Best Short Film.
The festival ran from October 6th through October 10th and played over 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,” said HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent.
