Provincetown International Film Festival Debuts 2014 Trailer

For 2014, the Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) trailer features some of Cape Cod's most prominent avian residents. Created by Gasket Studios with music by BWN Music, and debuting exclusively at The Huffington Post, the spot takes on animated film noir, complete with feathered intrigue and swift poetic justice.

PIFF packs a punch as filmmakers and celebrities descend upon the tiny Massachusetts town long known as a haven for artists and the LGBT community. Unofficially queer, it kicks off the summer season on the Cape with a celebration of phenomenal feature programming and parties across five days in June.

One of the country's preeminent film festivals, PIFF honors one director and one actor each year: Previous auteurs to nab the Filmmaker on the Edge Award include John Waters, Gus Van Sant, Quentin Tarantino and Darren Aronofsky; recipients of the Excellence in Acting Award include Alan Cumming, Tilda Swinton and Parker Posey. This year, those distinctions will go to David Cronenberg and Patricia Clarkson.

The 16th annual Provincetown International Film Festival takes place June 18-22 in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
