The Provincetown International Film Festival has announced its Opening and Closing night films, spotlight selections and narrative and documentary features for its 17th edition — running June 17 – 21 in the incomparably lovely town of Provincetown, MA. 

The Opening Night film will be Leslye Headland’s “Sleeping With Other People,” while the festival will close with James Franco-starring “I Am Michael,” directed by Justin Kelly. Spotlight Films are James Ponsoldt’s “The End of the Tour,” Paul Weitz’s “Grandma” and Jeffrey Schwartz’s “Tab Hunter Confidential.”

 “The independent filmmaking community continues to produce remarkably high quality work, here and abroad, and our feature lineup is a testament to that!” said Connie White, Artistic Director of PIFF. “We are thrilled to welcome these new films and filmmakers to Provincetown in June, and we know that filmgoers will be engaged and entertained by these adventurous, thought-provoking and accomplished films.”
