CLAMBAKE

The year was 1984. Several women innkeepers in Provincetown, vivacious young entrepreneurs, got together to plan an event to entice their summer patrons to return during the off season. Without the luxury of email and social media, they wrote to all of their past guests and invited them to come back to enjoy Provincetown's beautiful autumn surroundings, while enjoying a Clambake and some local entertainment. They called it "Women's Weekend." Their grassroots efforts eventually evolved to become on of the most popular week-long lesbian events to date, and was the catalyst for many spin-off lesbian Provincetown gatherings.

CLAMBAKE, an exciting new documentary from award-winning filmmaker Andrea Meyerson, charts the growth of Women's Week in Provincetown, from its inception to the thriving, exciting lesbian mecca it is today. The film will take viewers on a 30-year journey through archival footage and photos, interviews with celebrities and organizers, current event coverage and performances, offering a historical and hysterical look at what a few innovative women can accomplish.

Your donation is 100% tax-deductible and and all donors will receive acknowledgement in the film’s credits as well as other rewards. We hope you will consider donating and helping us to preserve an important part of our LGBT history!

The primary risks and challenges to completing the project once funded will be to move forward quickly and complete filming, post production, and distribution of the documentary by January 2015. Andrea Meyerson is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and creator of film and television programming as well as a producer of live comedy shows and concerts. As president of StandOut Productions, she has produced and directed more than 25 feature films, television specials and series episodes which have aired U.S. and Canadian networks, so Andrea is uniquely qualified and experienced to handle any obstacles or setbacks that might arise and to get this film finished and distributed!
