The Hamptons International Film Festival has announced the initial lineup for its 5th annual SummerDocs series, which kicks off Saturday, June 15, with Morgan Neville’s "Twenty Feet From Stardom," about the lives of backup singers.

The screening will be hosted by Dick Cavett and will include a live performance from Darlene Love, who is featured in the film.

Alec Baldwin, one of the driving forces behind the Hamptons festival and the SummerDocs series, returns on July 5 for Josh Fox's "Gasland Part II," a follow-up to his 2011 film about hydrofracking.

The final two films in the series have yet to be announced.

Tickets for the screenings, held at Guild Hall in East Hampton, are available for purchase at www.guildhall.org or at the Guild Hall Box Office.

The 21st annual Hamptons International Film Festival will be held over Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 10 -14.
