“We have an outstanding Friday opening night film on baseball in India, by East Hampton director Mirra Bank, a sure-to-be memorable Saturday evening gala honoring the legendary documentary filmmaking team of D A Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus of Sag Harbor, and a great Sunday closing night and Filmmaker’s Choice Award documentary on artist Larry Rivers by Bridgehampton director Lana Jokel,” noted HT2FF founder and executive director Jacqui Lofaro about the upcoming Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival (HT2FF).
Over the span of three days, HT2FF will screen 22 documentaries at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor. The Festival opens on Friday, December 6, at 4 p.m. with “Hot Water” by director Kevin Flint.
