The Provincetown Film Society (PFS) first started out as the Provincetown Film Festival (PIFF) in 1999 as a means to attract economic development to the town during the shoulder month of June. Since then, the festival has attracted millions of dollars to the town and has become one of the country's preeminent film festivals. It presents a diverse array of American and international narrative features, documentaries and short films, while highlighting the unique attributes of Provincetown's rich and diverse history as an arts colony, Portuguese fishing village, gay and lesbian mecca, and a town first inhabited by Native Americans.

The defining honor of the Festival is its "Filmmaker on the Edge Award," honoring outstanding achievement, innovation, and vision in filmmaking and given to a film artist whose admirable body of work pushes the boundaries of the medium. Filmmakers honored with this award represent the breadth and scope of independent filmmaking-as well as the Festival's continued relevance and importance to the industry's leading innovators:
