Submit now to the First Annual Provincetown Pet Film Festival!

The Provincetown Pet Film Festival features two ways to show off your pets!

Pilgrim Bark Park, Provincetown Film Society, and CASAS want a short video of YOUR dog!
Submit your best dog video to MAKE YOUR DOG A STAR! Videos will be selected and curated into a 90 minute film to be shown at The Water’s Edge Cinema located in Whalers Wharf, at 237 Commercial Street, on Aug. 29th at 2:00 and again at 4:00 p.m.

Got a great pet that isn't a pup? PTV is accepting submissions for The Provincetown 24 Hour Pet Channel! On Sunday, Aug. 30th, PTV will play non-stop videos of your cute pets on local Comcast channel 99. Send us a short video starring or about your kitten, frog, chinchilla, parrot, donkey, etc. Not only will they be on TV but the best pet videos will receive prizes from Art's Dune Tours, The Lobster Pot, or the 1620 Brewhouse.

All entries for MAKE YOUR DOG a star which are not selected for the 90 minute film will automatically become part of PTV’s 24 HOUR PET CHANNEL!
