The annual Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) opens today. Now in its 21st successful year, PIFF is the largest cultural event in lower Cape Cod and a premier cultural event, attracting 10,000 plus film-goers, movie buffs, and arts patrons.
This 5-day festival will showcase 45 features and 29 short films. Twenty-seven of the 70+ films were directed by women, reflecting the festival’s strong commitment to women-directed films (something Hollywood doesn’t champion despite lip service provided at the podiums of award shows).
This year Sean Baker will receive PIFF’s 2018 Filmmaker on the Edge and Molly Shannon and Chloe Grace Moretz will receive PIFF’s Excellence in Acting award. For more information and to get tickets visit their website at provincetownfilm.org.
