Invisible War, Any Day Now Win at Provincetown Film Festival

The Invisible War director Kirby Dick at the Provincetown International Film Festival

Any Day Now won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature over the weekend, while Kirby Dick's The Invisible War won for Best Documentary at the Provincetown International Film Festival over the weekend. Starring Alan Cumming and directed by Travis Fine, Day revolves around a handicapped teen who is taken in by a gay couple. Invisible War, meanwhile, is a heart-wrenching look at rampant sexual assault in the U.S. military and the institution's blatant disregard in addressing the little-known crisis. Festival attendees speculated that the feature will receive an Oscar nomination come awards season.

David France's How to Survive a Plague won the festival's John Schlesinger Award, given to a first time filmmaker. As previously announced, the 2012 Filmmaker on the Edge Award was given to Producer/Director Roger Corman.  Actor Parker Posey received the Excellence In Acting Award.  The Faith Hubley Career Achievement Award was given to director Kirby Dick.
