Provincetown Film Society 2019
Support us in celebrating 21 years of the Provincetown Film Society! 

Formed in 1998 in conjunction with our first Provincetown Film Festival, the Provincetown Film Society (PFS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to continuing the founding mission of the Provincetown Art Colony – to provide a welcoming, nurturing and inspiring environment for boundless and authentic creative exploration – in film. It has also been dedicated to the celebration of Provincetown – an American treasure nestled among spectacular National Seashore beaches and a shining example of diversity and inclusion. 

Our objective is achieved through our three primary activities: our annual Provincetown International Film Festival; our year-round theater operation, the Waters Edge Cinema; and the Gabrielle A. Hanna Provincetown Film Institute, providing special screenings, panel discussions, workshops on a variety of topics and supporting gender equity in media through the Women Filmmaker’s Residency Program, the Women's Media Summit, and the Women's Film Festival during Women's Week.

LGBTQ Youth Mentorship Program
The Anthony Lawson LGBTQ Youth Mentorship Program seeks to nurture emerging talent in the entertainment industry by connecting college-age LGBTQ students with established professionals for career advice and support. This program was founded by the Conte family of Boston, to honor Provincetown Film Society’s Board President, Anthony Lawson, for his contributions to educating and mentoring high school students. 

Each year, one scholarship will be awarded to a Boston-based LGBTQ college student (aged 18-24) with an academic focus in film production or programming. Once chosen, the student will have the opportunity to attend all of the Provincetown Film Society’s year-round programming – including the Provincetown International Film Festival – and will be partnered with three mentors who will provide them with life changing one-on-one guidance in their careers.
Part of the core mission of the Provincetown Film Society is to support aspiring filmmakers and endorse gender, racial and sexual diversity in U.S. entertainment media. This mentorship program is crucial to that mission as it prepares the next generation of LGBTQ voices for this rewarding but complex industry.
