The director Darren Aronofsky is scheduled to make a last-minute trip to the Hamptons International Film Festival on Sunday to present his closing-night film, "Black Swan."

Aronofsky's attendance, announced Sunday morning, caps off what must be the festival's most star-studded year yet. So far, James Franco, Isabella Rossellini, Julian Schnabel, Freida Pinto, Marcia Gay Harden, Bill Pullman, Alex Gibney, Doug Liman and the director Tom Hooper ("The King's Speech"), to name just a few, have all appeared at the festival.

"Black Swan," Aronofsky's follow-up to his critically-acclaimed drama "The Wrestler," is a psychological thriller starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as overly competitive New York City ballerinas. It screens at 9:15 p.m. at the UA East Hampton.
