The 25th anniversary of the Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) brought quite a few notable names to the Hamptons over Columbus Day weekend.
Jennifer Garner attended a Hamptons International Film Festival cocktail party at The Baker House 1650 in East Hampton on Friday afternoon, where The Tribes of Palos Verdes star sipped on wine and noshed on hors d’oeuvres in the gardens of the historic Inn. The actress took to Instagram to document her East End adventure, posting a picture of a windmill that had her reminiscing about a Barefoot Contessa episode and of her co-star Maika Monroe and herself at the film’s world premiere.
Annette Bening, who was in town to support her film Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, and Sir Patrick Stewart, who was honored with the Variety Creative Impact in Acting Award, were also spotted at The Baker House.
A star-studded HIFF brunch at Nick & Toni’s in East Hampton on Saturday brought out Sir Patrick Stewart, Alec Baldwin, Daveed Diggs and Timothee Chalamet.
On Sunday, Jimmy Fallon stopped by Townline BBQ in Sagaponack for lunch with a few friends.
Sir Patrick Stewart enjoyed The 1770 House in East Hampton so much he was spotted there twice over the holiday weekend. On Sunday, he dined with his wife Sunny Ozell, and the following visit, the duo left in such jovial spirits they danced up the Tavern steps to She’s a Bad Mama Jama.
On Sunday, the eve of the US premiere of I, Tonya, leading lady Margot Robbie was spotted chatting with Annette Bening at The 1770 House during a Film Festival soiree that also brought out Honorary Chairman Bob Balaban, Executive Director Anne Chaisson and Artistic Director David Nugent. Robbie – whose film Goodbye Christopher Robin also screened at HIFF – was joined by husband Tom Ackerley and Sebastian Stan, who played her on-screen husband in I, Tonya. Following the HIFF I, Tonya screening at Guild Hall, Robbie, Stan and the filmmaking team headed back to The 1770 House for drinks in the parlor.
The 1770 House also welcomed Jennifer Garner, In the Fade star Diane Kruger, Hilaria Baldwin and Alec Baldwin, Jerry Della Femina and Judy Licht with Andrew Saffir.
