'Captain Fantastic'

'Captain Fantastic' will open the Massachusetts-based fest.

The Provincetown International Film Festival on Friday announced its full lineup. 

Matt Ross' offbeat family dramedy Captain Fantastic will open the event, while the Madonna dance documentary Strike a Pose will close it out.

The festival's Spotlight selections also have been unveiled: Jonah Markowitz's Political Animals, the Logan Lerman starrer Indignation and Susan White's Our Kind of Traitor

"We continue to be impressed with the quality of films we view each year to put together our festival lineup," said PIFF artistic director Connie White. "In June, Provincetown will be abuzz with new talent to watch and returning artists who continue to take risks and push the boundaries of their work." 

As previously announced, director Ang Lee and actress Cynthia Nixon will be getting special tribute screenings of their respective films Brokeback Mountain and James White.

The Provincetown International Film Festival is set to run June 15-19 in Provincetown, Mass.
