Provincetown Women’s Week Film Fest

By Charlotte Robinson, October 07, 2021

For over 30 years Provincetown has hosted Women's Week that was founded in 1984 by several entrepreneurial & fabulous lesbian innkeepers. It began as an intimate clambake & has become one of the longest & largest running lesbian events in history. This year Women's Week takes place October 11th to 17th with 150+ events including an exciting program of diverse films & conversations by emerging female filmmakers. It wouldn't be Women's Week without the annual screening of “Clambake” that documents Women's Week in Provincetown’s 30-year journey with archival footage, photos & interviews directed by Andrea Myerson who will be on hand for a Q&A on October 14th. Another highlight among the feature films & short programs that will be presented during the week is “Ahead Of The Curve” to be screened with Lea Delaria’s short film “The Lesbian Bar Project”. Director Jen Rainin stated, “The quintessential lesbian documentary “Ahead Of The Curve” is screening at Waters Edge Cinema in PTown for Women's Week. The film tells the story of Franco Stevens’ wild ride as she launched Curve magazine in 1990 with a handful of credit cards & a lucky run at the horse track. Franco & Lea DeLaria will join the filmmakers for a Q&A after the October 12th show.” Also joining the Q&A will be filmmakers Rivkah Beth Medow & Jen Rainin. Last May I talked to Jen & Franco Stevens about what they hope to accomplish with “Ahead Of The Curve”, their newly created Curve Foundation & their spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
