Amanda Seyfried in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's Lovelace

The Provincetown International Film Festival recently unveiled its 15th anniversary lineup with the East Coast Premiere of Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's Lovelace on tap as the event's Opening Night film. Starring Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple, Sharon Stone and James Franco, the bio-drama tells the story of Linda Lovelace, who was used and abused by the porn industry at the behest of her coercive husband, before taking control of her life.

The long weekend event, which is the signature festival of the Provincetown Film Society, will also feature Jeffrey Schwarz's I Am Divine and Pedro Almodóvar's I'm So Excited as PIFF's Friday and Saturday Night Spotlights, respectively, while the East Coast premiere of Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes by Francesca Gregorini will close out the festival.

In other highlights, writer/director Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers, Gummo, Kids) will receive Provincetown's "Filmmaker on the Edge Award" on Saturday evening in Provincetown's Town Hall Saturday on June 22. Korine will appear for an on-stage conversation with P-town part-time resident, John Waters.

The Provincetown International Film Festival takes place June 19 - 23.
