The Hamptons International Film Festival Kicks Off their SummerDocs Series June 15th with TWENTY FEET FROM STARDOM

The Hamptons International Film Festival Kicks Off their SummerDocs Series 

Guild Hall | 158 Main Street, East Hampton NY

 Red Carpet: 8:00PM | Screening: at 8:30PM

Following the screening, Lisa Fischer will participate in a Q&A Hosted by the legendary Dick Cavett

*Please note Darlene Love will no longer be in attendance*

 Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, TWENTY FEET FROM STARDOM is a tribute to the unsung, yet unmistakable voices of the backup singers, which brought shape and style to popular music over the years. Gifted artists, spanning a range of manners, genres and eras, are featured sharing their uniquely fascinating and personal stories of life spent in the shadows of superstardom. Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. Interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting , to name a few, take a backseat to the diverse array of singers whose lives and stories take center stage in this compelling new documentary from award-winning director Morgan Neville.

Tickets for the screenings are available for purchase at or at the Guild Hall Box Office.

The 21st Annual Hamptons International Film Festival will be held over Columbus Day Weekend, October 10th – 14th 2013.

The Hamptons International Film Festival was founded in 1993 to celebrate independent film- long, short, fiction and documentary - and to introduce a unique, varied spectrum of international films and filmmakers to the public. The Festival is committed to exhibiting films that express fresh voices and differing global perspectives, with the hope that these programs will enlighten audiences, provide invaluable exposure for filmmakers and present inspired entertainment for all. Taking place among the charming seaside historic villages of Long Island's East End, the Hamptons International Film Festival's intimate, informal atmosphere makes the festival an ideal destination for cinephiles.  For more information about the Festival, visit our website at
