Provincetown Film Society, Board President, Richard McCarthy stated, “We wanted to focus on & support the Festival student shorts films. This project was an excellent way for us to bring the work of talented young filmmakers to larger audiences in the Boston area.” David Isaacson, Project Director added, "Showing & nurturing student films to large audiences in urban areas is important to the growth/health of the independent film industry.
