What is COLD STORAGE?

COLD STORAGE is a documentary about Provincetown, Massachusetts, a uniquely American fishing port, beach town, artist enclave, and longtime LGBT community. Our film focuses specifically on Provincetown's winter season, as the changes between seasons are as extreme and remarkable as the flow of the bay's daily tide.

What happens in this vibrant artist community when winter comes and the vacation ends? While nearly 100,000 summer residents - including beach tourists, art enthusiasts, and LGBT vacationers alike - bask in the town's eccentric, seasonal energy and resources, the lifeblood of this community are the few who endure its dramatic transformation through the seasons.

Our film portrays a town and culture in everlasting flux, through the vibrant voices and stories of those who remain year-round.

For over two years, various collaborators have participated in this labor of love, self-funding their own travel and accommodations to take part in what has been an enriching and inspiring experience. We've talked to over twenty-five Provincetown residents, filmed performances at local venues, toured everything from the local library to the dune shacks, and witnessed some of the most unique and awe-inspiring nature in the United States.

Why are we making this film?

We grew up visiting Provincetown in the summers, like thousands of vacationers do each year, dipping our toes in the effervescent culture of a town unlike any other.

Years later, with Provincetown still occupying a place of nostalgia in our minds, we visited in the offseason and discovered a wholly different energy. In the height of the summer season, it's easy to get lost in the mobbed streets and plentiful art galleries, parties, beaches, and general reverie. But in the winter, the town shows its bones. It's beautiful. Through our research in the winter months, we felt connected to the community in a way that couldn't quite translate to a constructed narrative. Instead, we wanted the town's colorful residents to share their stories, in their own words.

Who are we?

Hi there! We are director Eddie Shore and Lime Hawk Arts Collective.

Eddie Shore is a filmmaker from Brooklyn, NY, and a founding member of the filmmaking collective Color Chart. In the last couple of years, Eddie has focused on his own work as a director, including his 2014 short film Violet King, which you can watch here: https://vimeo.com/78022494.

Lime Hawk is an independent arts collective and literary press based in Redding, Connecticut. Headed by writer and editor Ginny Levy, Lime Hawk produces and showcases works of art that live at the intersection of environment, culture, and sustainability.

What do we need funding for?

Editing and finishing the film! As you can see from the images and footage above, the film has been shot, which we are extremely proud and excited about. But unlike our work in the field, completing the film has inherent costs that cannot be tendered in sweat and blood (or at least we sincerely hope not!) If we can secure funding for our editing team, sound design, score, and color grading, as well as for the festival fees and travel costs to ensure the film is available for the world to see, our documentary will reflect Provincetown's beauty and dynamic energy in a way never before seen in film.

Give us a hand?

Risks and challenges

While we've been extremely fortunate to have gotten this far, we've got to climb one last hill before we can finish the film.

We have an amazing group of artists and collaborators lined up to help complete the documentary, however we need this last push of funding in order to secure their services. We're *this close* to wrapping what we think is a film worthwhile of everyone's time, heart, money, and energy, and we would love to honor those who have already contributed with the project we all deserve.

Our greatest risk, quite simply, is not being able to finish the film we have all worked so hard to construct. But with your help, we can all take pride in completing the film together, taking our last steps with a new group of collaborators via Kickstarter.
