Aaron Eckhart, Edward Norton and Holly Hunter will sit for live interviews at next month’s Hamptons International Film Festival.

The three actors will comprise the festival’s popular “A Conversation With . . . ” series. Although that series has traditionally taken place at Sag Harbor’s Bay Street Theater, this year’s venues will be in East Hampton.

Each actor is representing a film at the festival. Eckhart plays boxing trainer Kevin Rooney in “Bleed for This,” a biopic about the boxer Vinny Pazienza (Miles Teller), who overcame a near-fatal car accident and stepped back into the ring. Hunter stars in “Strange Weather,” Katherine Dieckmann’s drama about a woman traveling the Deep South to settle a score. That film is the festival’s opening night film in Southampton. Norton, previously announced as the recipient of the festival’s career achievement award this year, is a producer of “Bunker 77,” a documentary about the enigmatic and troubled surfer Bunker Spreckels.

The Hamptons International Film Festival runs Oct. 6-10 at venues around the East End.
