    4 Not-To-Be-Missed at Ptown Film Festival

    4 Not-To-Be-Missed Film Festival Events

    As always, the Provincetown Film Festival is packed with films, fun, and frolic. And ptownie has selected five events for your viewing (and imbibing!) pleasure that you won’t want to miss!

    Let’s start out in Wellfleet, where the big drive-in screen (or, indeed, your own virtual screen at home) will be filled for three nights (June 16, 17, and 18) with great films

      • Give or Take: When a disillusioned New Yorker’s father dies, he goes home to Cape Cod and prepares the house for sale—while sharing it with his father’s temperamental live-in boyfriend.
      • In The Heights: Wonder what Lin-Manuel Miranda was doing before he created Hamilton? Wonder no longer: In The Heights fuses his kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye to tell a story that’s both specific and universa
      • Fargo: Who doesn’t want to see this classic again? (Has it really been 25 years?) Fargo is the Coen Brothers classic story about an inept salesman-turned-criminal and the persistent police officer who closes in on him like a modern-day Jean Valjean.

      Next up it’s a filmmaker celebration at the Truro Vineyards on Saturday June 19 at 6pm to celebrate a significant milestone for two film artists with deep ties to Provincetown and our festival: producer Christine Vachon and writer/director/producer Daniel Minahan. Twenty-five years after their landmark independent film I Shot Andy Warhol, they’re again partnering to create and executive-produce the new Netflix series Halston, which Dan is directing. Separately and together they have created some of the most important and celebrated film and television projects of our lifetime. This is a ticketed event, and includes specialty cocktails, food from Blackfish, Truro Vineyards wines, and Devil’s Purse beers.

      Then it’s on to the community pop-up drive-in at Herring Cove on Saturday June 19 at dusk, somewhere around 8pm. Want another classic? They have it here: Back to the Future! So bring a car-full of your favorite people, pre-purchase concessions from the cinema and enjoy the PFF version of a drive-in!

      And finally come enjoy the Seventh Annual Evan Lawson Filmmakers’ Brunch on Sunday, June 20, at 11am) that supports the festival as well as Provincetown International Film Society year-round programming. Brunch and cocktails Bubala’s By The Bay—what could be better? Maybe add in a literary conversation? No problem: Mark Protosevich will be at the event to engage with NYT bestselling author Wally Lamb.

      And that’s it! You can get more information and purchase tickets for all these events at the PFF website. Enjoy the festival!
