The Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) has announced its complete lineup of narrative, documentary and short films for "Provincetown Reimagined," presented by WarnerMedia.

The modified festival runs July 16-19, 2020 and will include two nights of double features at the Wellfleet Drive-In, as well as a virtual cinema program through an online platform, and a special conversation honoring actress Mya Taylor moderated by filmmaker PJ Raval.

"We're thrilled to present our reimagined film festival with a lineup that safely brings our local community together at the Wellfleet Drive-in and attendees from across the country on our virtual platform," said Andrew Peterson, PIFF's Director of Programming. "Our lineup reflects the need to connect — whether it's through thought-provoking films that speak to this country's longstanding issues with race and equity, the best in LGBTQ cinema from 2020, PJ Raval's conversation with 2020 Next Wave honoree Mya Taylor, or just a much-needed laugh through an awesome night at the Drive-In hosted by John Waters. It may not be the festival we've all come to expect — but it's 100% Provincetown."
