PIFF Filmmakers Speak OUT (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, June 24, 2024

This week I talked with filmmakers at the 26th annual Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) press luncheon at the Boatslip Resort & Beach Club in Provincetown, MA. First I talked to director Stephen Soucy about his documentary “Merchant Ivory” that pulls back the curtain on the fascinating lives of filmmakers Ismail Merchant & James Ivory. Next I chatted with director Fawzia Mirza & producer Andria Wilson Mirza about their feature film “The Queen of My Dreams”. Then I talked with director Taylor James, actor Kanoa Goo & producer Katie White about their short film “ILY, BYE”. Next I talked to director Tyler C. Peterson about his short film “Stan Behavior”. I then chatted with director Sarah McCarron & music producer Rascal Miles about their short film “The Bend” about a trans man migrating from Tennessee to Minneapolis who gets stranded in rural Wisconsin & encounters a fisherman. Next director Marco Calvani talked about his feature film “High Tide” that was shot in Provincetown about an undocumented Brazilian immigrant searching for purpose when he encounters Maurice creating a memorable tribute to love & loss. I concluded our conversation with veteran producer Christine Vachon who produced the 2023 Oscar nominated film “Past Lives” about what she’s working on now. The Provincetown Film Society, Inc. (PFS) is a non-profit year-round organization & home of the Provincetown International Film Festival. PIFF creates a unique international platform for the west & east coast entertainment industry to experience the diversity & community of Provincetown. PFS is also dedicated to showcasing the work of acclaimed & emerging directors, producers and actors. I also had an opportunity to talk with all the filmmakers about their spin on our LGBTQ issues as we approach the crucial 2024 presidential election. LISTEN
