Provincetown Community Television Producer Selected for International Film Festival

PROVINCETOWN – A volunteer producer for Provincetown Community Television (PTV) has been selected for inclusion in the 100-second International Film Festival.

Tracy Kachtick Anders tells the story of her journey with her 15-year-old son, Wyatt, whose diagnosed with Down Syndrome in the short film “Love.”

Like many people with Down Syndrome and other disabilities, Wyatt has had many triumphs and setbacks in his life. However, the one constant in his life has been the unconditional love of his mother, Tracy.

“When I look at my son Wyatt and I think about all that we have been through together, that no one else can really understand, I feel like I could write poetry all day or make 20,000 films about him,” said Kachtick-Anders.

Kachtick-Anders produced the film at PTV as part of a workshop at the facility.

“Almost ten years ago I made one of those vision boards and I put the word “Showtime” on there because I had this fantasy that I would be a documentary filmmaker. Seven, eight, ten kids later, I realized I would never catch up to all of those with more skills, who are more tech savvy and have more resources and time. But when I saw PTV was offering filmmaking classes and then a chance to enter the 100-Second Film Festival, I figured I could squeeze that into my busy life,” she said.

The 100-Second Film Festival launched in 2005 in Lowell, Massachusetts. The festival features creative work including film, animation, and video that is 100-seconds or less in duration.

A screening of “Love” will take place on Saturday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Oak Ames Memorial Hall in North Easton. PTV is planning a screening in Provincetown for later this fall.
