For the past ten years, the Hamptons International Film Festival has honored the work of up and coming young actors through an exciting initiative called the Breakthrough Performers program. Eight actors from around the world, including three of European Film Promotion’s 2010 Shooting Stars, will present their exceptional performances in films highlighted at the Festival. This year’s recipients are Jessica Chastain (The Debt), Luke Grimes (Shit Year), Freida Pinto (Miral), Noomi Rapace (The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) and Brittany Robertson (The Family Tree and Cherry). On October 09, the Hamptons International Film Festival will host a roundtable discussion with the above actors about what it takes to make it as a young actor in today’s film industry. Discussion will be moderated by Rajendra Roy, the Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film at the Museum of Modern Art.
