The entire movie world has descended on Long Island for the annual Hampton's Film Festival and Saturday was the Chairman's Reception. 

The Hampton's looked more like Hollywood as movie heavy hitters showed up at the Chairman's Reception in East Hampton.  

"It's really wonderful sort of to see one of my children be in the Hamptons Film Festival," said Stuart Suna, HIFF chairman. "I have a daughter Roe, 16, and another daughter Zoe who's 20. But seeing this festival as one of my children grow and blossom -- it's really exciting." 

Newlyweds Alec and Hilaria Baldwin like the movie "Amore" in the festival but their favorite love story? 

"It's the one we're doing right now," said actor Hilaria Baldwin. "It's the real life, love movie. Everyday is a love movie."  

Dree Hemingway has her breakout role in the street. She's on Variety's "Top 10 to Watch" list you can say. Creativity is in her genes. 

She was asked about being the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway and how has he inspired her work.

"I think one of the things I've definitely taken from him is the exploration and being able to travel and being privileged enough to, which is amazing," said Hemingway.  

New mom Sienna Miller came to the Hamptons for the very first time to support her film, "The Girl."

"I play Tippi Hedren in a film called "The Girl. "It's about the making of "The Birds" an Alfred Hitchcock film," said Miller.

Garnering the most attention at the festival is the Silver Lining Playbook starring Bradley Cooper. He's getting Oscar buzz, speaking of … 

"What's my favorite Oscar movie of all time? Casablanca," said Hawk Koch, president of the Academy
