Provincetown Int'l Film Festival (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, June 03, 2022

This week I talked with Anne Hubbell, Executive Director of the Provincetown International Film Festival that runs in person from June 15th to June 19th in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Celebrating its 24th year the opening night film will be Sophie Hyde’s “Good Luck to You, Leo Grande” starring Emma Thompson & Daryl McCormack. The 2022 “Filmmaker on the Edge” is Academy Award nominated filmmaker Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name). Guadagnino will be in attendance to accept the award in conversation with resident artist John Waters on Sunday June 19th. Actress Dale Dickey will receive the festival’s Excellence in Acting Award & will accept the award on Sunday June 19th in conversation with journalist & novelist Thelma Adams at Provincetown Town Hall. The recipients of this year’s “Next Wave Award” will be presented to Jenny Slate & Bowen Yang on June 16th. Yang will also be in attendance to support his film “Fire Island” which is playing at the festival. This year’s fest will also welcome past honorees Parker Posey & John Cameron Mitchell’s return to PIFF. Posey will be presenting Christopher Guest’s timeless classic 1996 mockumentary comedy “Waiting For Guffman” which will screen free to the public on MacMillan Pier on June 17th. Cameron Mitchell will be presenting the New 4K Criterion Collection digital restoration of “Shortbus” at Town Hall on June 18th. There will also be lots of fabulous special events & premiers. I talked to Anne about what she hopes to accomplish at PIFF this year & as an ally her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
