Additional batches of tickets to several choice screenings during the upcoming Hamptons International Film Festival went on sale Thursday.

When we checked late Thursday there were seats available for closing night's "Still Alice" starring Julian Moore on Monday, Oct. 13 at 7 and 7:30 p.m. There were tickets as well to Olivier Assayas's "Clouds of Sils Maria" starring Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, and Chole Grace Moretz. One has to move fast when tickets become available. The festival staff has suggested keeping an eye on its Facebook page and Twitter feed for up-to-the-minute changes and additional listings.

Tickets to some of its Conversation With . . . series are available as well. These include a Saturday, Oct. 11 session with the actress Laura Dern. Talkfests with Hilary Swank and Mark Ruffalo were on sale; tickets remained for a Friday, Oct. 10 event at the Bay Street Theater with Patricia Clarkson, who co-stars with Ben Kingsley in "Learning to Drive," one of HIFF's Spotlight Films, whose two screenings are already sold out, though patrons who try their luck on the festival's "rush" lines usually stand a good chance of scoring a seat.

Tickets are available for many of HIFF's films from around the globe. These included choices in the Golden Starfish Narratives and Documentaries and World Cinema categories . These can contain many of the festival's hidden gems, films not likely to see wide distribution among the nation's multiplexes. For many viewers, the Hamptons Festival will be their only chance to see these films on a big screen.

Most of the title in the Conflict and Resolution programming remained on sale as of Thursday evening. This included "Virunga," about the threats facing a UNESCO world heritage park in eastern Congo that was the winner of the Zelda Penzel Giving Voice to the Voiceless Award this year.

The Hamptons International Film Festival box office is at 47 Main Street in East Hampton in the Obligato shop and is open from noon to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are also available at the Southampton Arts Center, 25 Jobs Lane in Southampton, and in New York City at 416 West 42nd Street.
