2017 PFS Annual Appeal
Did you know that among the top-grossing 250 Hollywood films of 2016, only 7% were directed by women? Worse yet, over the course of a decade, only 44 or a staggering 1.9% of the top-grossing films were directed by women. These numbers affect all of us.

Unless women of all backgrounds tell half the stories and participate equally in the messaging, our most influential cultural export will lack the fundamental authenticity of character and spirit that defines who we are. This past year, because of the tremendous support of donors like yourselves, we were able to level the playing field in the following ways:

• At our annual film festival, we highlighted the achievements of female trailblazers in Hollywood including Filmmaker on the Edge Sofia Coppola, Excellence in Acting
Award to Chlöe Sevigny;
• We hosted our third annual Women’s Filmmaker Residency Program for established filmmakers;
• We gathered 125 thought-leaders from across the country for our first annual Women’s Media Summit in three powerful enterprises: A White Paper with actionable strategies to address gender inequity in Hollywood, the formation of a Women’s Media Action Coalition (WeMac) and a consumer activism tool www.grademymovie.com


Your gift enables us to create these and countless other innovative year-round programs through our three primary initiatives: the upcoming 20th Annual Provincetown Film Festival, our year-round art house Waters Edge Cinema, and the Gabrielle Hanna Film Institute of conferences, workshops, and residencies.


With your support, we can continue to serve our diverse communities while making Provincetown the global destination for creative exploration in film. Please use the enclosed envelope or visit our website at www.provincetownfilm.org to make your tax-deductible contribution today.


Thank you in advance for your generosity.
