PHOTOS: The People and Places of the Film Festival

Friday and Saturday's Hamptons International Film Festival events brought out crowds of young and old as attendees tried to balance the gorgeous fall weather with a full plate of screenings, talks, panels, parties, and other activities. Surprise guests, like Meryl Streep, joined scheduled speakers such as Stevie Nicks, Richard Gere, and Alan Cumming at various festival events.
