Ready for carousing on the Cape? The Provincetown Film Festival has assembled another top-notch selection of films for its gala screenings, and it's got some major names lined up to receive awards.

The festival will open with Leslye Headland's Sundance hit "Bachelorette," which was picked up by Radius-TWC. Also featured is "Fairhaven," Tom O'Brien's Massachusetts-set drama which just held its world premiere at Tribeca.

The festival's two Spotlight titles are both high-profile, gay-themed films: Jonathan Lisecki's conception comedy "Gayby" and Jeffrey Schwarz's activism doc "Vito."

The 2012 Filmmaker On The Edge award will go to B-movie pioneer and Hollywood legend Roger Corman. Parker Posey will receive the Excellence in Acting Award. The Faith Hubley Career Achievement Award will go to Kirby Dick, whose film "The Invisible War" will be released by New Video this year.

The 2012 Provincetown Film Festival will run June 13-17.
