The Hamptons International Film Festival announced their annual awards Monday morning at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church.
The festival’s Audience Awards went to Stephen Frears’s “Philomena,” a drama starring Dame Judi Dench, and “Desert Runners,” Jennifer Steinman’s documentary about the 4 Deserts Race Series of 150-mile ultramarathons. Irene Taylor Brodsky’s “One Last Hug (…And a Few Smooches): Three Days at Grief Camp” won the Audience Award for Best Short.
Filmed in Bellport over a period of 18 days for $700,000, "The Maid's Room" has the look of an expensive Hollywood production. “We did everything we could to make a local film, but not a small film,” says Michael Walker, its director.
