PROVINCETOWN FILM SOCIETY’S MISSION

The Provincetown Film Society (PFS), which began as the Provincetown International Film Festival in 1999, is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to showcasing new achievements in independent film and honoring the work of emerging as well as acclaimed directors, producers and actors. Our mission is articulated through three primary activities: the annual Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) now in its 18th successful year; our year round theater operation, the Water’s Edge Cinema (WE); and our emerging Gabrielle A. Hanna Provincetown Institute for film and media artist residencies and conferences (PIF). A substantial contributor to the economic and creative vitality of America’s oldest art colony, PFS is dedicated to becoming a sustainable, year round cultural organization that brings film education, genre-specific festivals and cultural partnerships to the outer Cape.
