    Tickets for the Hamptons International Film Festival will be available starting tomorrow for purchase online. The festival will run from Oct. 10 to Oct 14.

   At press time, the festival had only released the names of the opening, closing, and centerpiece films as well as the Views From Long Island titles.

   “Kill Your Darlings,” a film by John Krokidas, will be shown on opening night. It is based on the life of the poet Allen Ginsberg and a pivotal year in his creative development. The director and star, Dane DeHaan, will attend the screening.

   On the night of Oct. 13, a Sunday, the centerpiece film will be “Nebraska,” Alexander Payne’s latest, which also signals a return to his native state. It stars Bruce Dern and Will Forte as a father and son on a road trip to claim a purported fortune.

   The closing night film, on Oct. 14, is “12 Years a Slave.” Directed by Steve McQueen, it is based on a true story of a free black man from New York State who was abducted and sold into slavery. The film stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Brad Pitt.

   Tickets for the opening and closing nights are $30. A full breakdown of prices is available on the Web site hamptonsfilmfest.org, where tickets can be purchased for a $3 handling fee.

   Tickets will also be available at festival ticket offices at QF Gallery on Newtown Lane in East Hampton, in Southampton (this weekend only) at the Southampton Center on Job’s Lane (the former Parrish Art Museum), and in Manhattan at 416 West 42nd Street. The Web site has the box office hours of operation. Passes and packages are also available for purchase.
