GARY WINICK (1961-2011)

Director/producer Gary Winick premiered multiple films at HIFF, winning the Audience Award in 1999 for his drama THE TIC CODE. Throughout the early 2000s, Winick’s brainchild InDigEnd was a high-profile production company that championed low-cost, independent and digital moviemaking. A longtime supporter of the Festival, Gary considered the Hamptons his second home. The Gary Winick Memorial Fund was established to help young filmmakers hone their craft and further the art of cinema.
