The Provincetown Film Society (PFS) is a non-profit dedicated to continuing the founding mission of the Provincetown Art Colony - to provide a welcoming, nurturing and inspiring environment for boundless and authentic creative exploration - in film.

PIFF was first produced in 1999, the same year Provincetown celebrated its 100th anniversary as America's oldest art colony. Literally on the edge - both artistically and geographically - Provincetown takes pride in embracing creativity and diversity in a thriving and increasingly year-round tourist, business and art economy. For decades, Provincetown has been known to attract such legendary artists, writers and filmmakers as Eugene O'Neill, Norman Mailer, Dashiell Hammett, Lillian Hellman, Robert Motherwell, Edward Hopper, Lily Tomlin, John Waters, Connie Francis, Helen Hayes, Marc Jacobs, Ethan Coen, and Quentin Tarantino among many more.
