Creating Community Through Film

The Provincetown Film Society (PFS) is a member driven organization dedicated to showcasing new achievements in independent American and international film and honoring the work of acclaimed and emerging directors, producers and actors. This is achieved through its 5-day Festival in June, its year-round theatre operation, the Waters Edge Cinema and the soon to be launched Film Institute. PFS is equally devoted to expanding the audience for independent film and to serving the Provincetown and Outer Cape community by filling the void for annual film programming and reflecting the community's rich diversity in its selected films and honorees. PFS is also dedicated to preserving film as an art form, as well as contributing to the economic and creative vitality of America's oldest art colony.

The Provincetown Film Society launched its 3-year 1.1 million-dollar Capital Campaign in April 2010 to purchase and renovate the 70-seat Whaler’s Wharf Cinema, upgrade the cinema to state of the art HD Digital video and sound; create a 2nd multipurpose screening room to offer first run animation, documentary, foreign language and short films as well as serve as a video art gallery for emerging video artists; and create an account with capital and operating reserves.  To date the Campaign has raised $750,000 and the renovations at the newly named Waters Edge Cinema are 90% complete.
