Winter Film Series
Starting January 17th, the Friday Harbor Film Festival team will be commencing our winter film series. The 2016 Festival favorites — as selected by our attendees — will be screened at the Grange on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Screenings will start at 7pm sharp, so arrive early to get a seat. See the poster for the specific schedule of films.
This exciting film series, to be co-hosted by Theresa Simendinger and Jessica Lansfield, will kick off on January 17 and run through June 6. Entry will be by donation (with all proceeds supporting Festivals in future years).
If you would like to help organize the series, set up chairs or to make a donation that will help cover screening fees and venue costs, please stop by the Film Festival’s office on First Street or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
