Israeli-French Divorce Drama 'Gett' Takes Top Prize at Hamptons International Film Festival

The Hamptons International Film Festival has announced the full list of winners from this year’s festival, which wrapped last night with a screening of “Still Alice,” starring Julianne Moore.

Two foreign films — the Israeli-French divorce drama “Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem” and the German-Italian autism documentary “The Special Need” — took home the top jury prizes in the narrative and documentary categories, respectively.

Orlando Von Einsiedel’s “Virunga,” which premiered at Tribeca earlier this year and will be made available to stream on Netflix beginning November 7, was recognized with The Victor Rabinowitz and Joanne Grant Award for Social Justice.

As previously announced, the annual Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize was awarded to “The Imitation Game,” Morten Tyldem’s biopic of British code-cracker Alan Turing. The 2014 Brizzolara Family Foundation Award for a Film of Conflict and Resolution went to the documentary “E-Team.” Co-directed by Katy Chevigny (“Election Day”) and Ross Kaufman (“Born Into Brothels”), “E-Team” centers on the Emergency Team, an investigative branch of the NGO Human Rights Watch.
