Opening Night Party


21+ only
($20 cover)
Come one, come all to kick off the festival at our Opening Night Party, hosted by the historic waterfront Crown and Anchor. We're pleased to welcome indie music legend Stephin Merritt (of The Magnetic Fields) as tonight's DJ, spinning his characteristic playlist of nostalgic bubblegum-pop tracks.
Clink, drink, and mingle, with a toast to our 16th year! Delight upon beer, wine, spirits and nosh while meeting fellow filmgoers, filmmakers and other visiting guests as we officially launch the 5-day festivities. 
Catering provided by Central House, our official Farm-to-Table restaurant. Event sponsored by the Crown & Anchor. Bar sponsored by Stella Artois, Once Upon a Vine, Stellina di Notte, and Ketel One.

Beachside Bash


21+ only 
(No cover)
A new festival tradition, tonight's beachside bash at Harbor Hotel actually has a dual identity -- twice as fun, twice as tempting!

Inside the hotel's retro-chic Lounge, it's double trouble on the big screen, with back-to-back showings of two of David Cronenberg's freakiest films, THE FLY (1986) and VIDEODROME (1983).

Then, outside around the pit, it's a fireside gathering of filmgoers and guests, paired with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a fully stocked cash bar. Bongos optional.

Two ultra-casual film festival parties for the price of none, sponsored by the Harbor Hotel.

Thu., June 19, Harbor Hotel @ 8:30pm
Schoolhouse Reception

(Admission limited to Monument, Lighthouse, Sponsor, and Filmmaker Passholders only -- Monument and Lighthouse passes may be purchased on the Film Schedule page)

Among the many draws of Provincetown are its captivating galleries, and we are fortunate to return to the Schoolhouse and ArtSTRAND Galleries with a toast to film and artistry in its many forms.

At this elegant event, sponsors, donors, and filmmakers can enjoy a relaxed setting and inspiring surroundings, featuring artwork by Faith Hubley, Marty Epp-Carter, Amy Heller, Patti Hudson, Doug Padgett, William Scully, Andre van der Wende, Zehra Khan, and many more.
Just one of the benefits of supporting the Provincetown Film Society as a sponsor or donor, come sample fine food from Cosmos Catering, and beverages from Stellina di Notte, Once Upon a Vine, and Stella Artois.
