What is Provincetown Film Festival?

Each year, the festival presents a diverse array of American and international narrative features, documentaries and short films. Recognized as one of the country’s preeminent film festivals, the annual Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) celebrates its 19th year in 2018.

Diversity runs through the selection of films the festival shows each year. They also highlight the unique attributes of Provincetown’s rich and diverse history as an arts colony, Portuguese fishing village, gay and lesbian mecca, and a town first inhabited by Native Americans.
