The Hamptons International Film Festival has announced the first edition of its Summer Family Film Festival in association with the Southampton Arts Center. The three day event, taking place August 22-24, will open with a selection of Charlie Chaplin film shorts and will close with a 3D screening of DreamWorks Animation’s acclaimed summer sequel, “How To Train Your Dragon 2.”

The opening night compilation of Charlie Chaplin shorts will include classics such as “The Rink,” “The Pawnshop” and “The Adventurer.” Other features screening at the festival are Oscar-nominated animated film “Ernest & Celestine” and Disneynature’s “Bears.”
