This Year's Provincetown Film Festival Trailer Pays Tribute To Jackson Pollock And Edward Hopper

Cynthia Nixon and Ang Lee are among 2016's honorees.

For five days every June, a small coastal town in Massachusetts becomes the site of a global cinematic showcase. This year's Provincetown International Film Festival kicks off Wednesday, and The Huffington Post is exclusively debuting the event's trailer. Created by CRASH+SUES, the clip brings to life the work of artists who have called Cape Cod their home, including Jackson Pollock, Marsden Hartley and Edward Hopper. 

Over the next several days, a contemporary group of artists will flock to Provincetown. Cynthia Nixon is set to receive PIFF's Excellence in Acting award, whose past recipients include Tilda Swinton and Parker Posey. "Brokeback Mountain" and "Life of Pi" director Ang Lee will earn the Filmmaker on the Edge prize, a lifetime achievement award that has gone to Todd Haynes, Quentin Tarantino and Darren Aronofsky. The movies on this year's lineup include "Captain Fantastic," "Indignation" and "Strike a Pose."
