To The Point: Women Telling Stories Through The Media will host a screening of short films made by Women In Film and Television members from around the world at the 17th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival.

A joint venture of the Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) and New York Women In Film & Television (NYWIFT), To The Point is in its seventh year of screenings. This series gives voice to the creative visions of women through film and video, including narrative, documentary, animation and experimental works.

NYWIFT invites its members, as well as members from our U.S. and international sister chapters, to submit their short films, no more than 20 minutes in length. Please download and fill out the 2009 HIFF application (link is above in the right hand corner) and forward two copies to our office in New York along with two DVD or VHS copies of your work. The deadline for submissions is July 13, 2009.

Now entering its 17th year, The Hamptons International Film Festival was founded to provide a forum for independent filmmakers from around the world to express their vision. The Festival is traditionally held for five days in mid-October in theatre venues from Montauk to Southampton and attracts roughly 15,000 visitors annually. At least twenty countries are represented in the slate of roughly 100 films that are showcased each year, with an awards package worth over $200,000. The festival continues to play a part in the awards season, with the 2008 edition featuring eventual Best Picture winners of the Academy Award, Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award.
