The 2014 festival…just the facts

Fri­day Har­bor Film Festival’s sec­ond annu­al week­end-long event, held Novem­ber 7, 8 and 9, 2014, was even more suc­cess­ful than its inau­gur­al week­end last year. Par­tic­i­pa­tion increased by 55% over 2013’s atten­dance as islanders and vis­i­tors flocked to town to view an excit­ing selec­tion of doc­u­men­taries relat­ed to the Pacif­ic Rim.

A total of 3056 atten­dees (count­ed by entrance to each film) viewed 30 full-length films, 12 short films and attend­ed five spe­cial events over the three days of the Festival.

Atten­dance by day was:
Fri­day — 927
Sat­ur­day — 1154
Sun­day — 975

In addi­tion, 70 peo­ple attend­ed the added Mon­day morn­ing screen­ing of DamNa­tion and Return of the Riv­er, two of the Festival’s most pop­u­lar offerings.

The increase in atten­dance this year can most like­ly be attrib­uted to more afford­able fam­i­ly pric­ing.  But even despite low­er tick­et prices, rev­enue increased by 25% over 2013.

With­out local vol­un­teers and spon­sors the Film Fes­ti­val would not suc­ceed. 155 indi­vid­u­als vol­un­teered their time and tal­ents, receiv­ing free film pass­es in exchange for their involve­ment.  63 busi­ness­es and local orga­ni­za­tions spon­sored the Fes­ti­val finan­cial­ly and with in-kind donations.

Dur­ing the Film Fes­ti­val fer­ry traf­fic increased con­sid­er­ably, as many vis­i­tors trav­eled to Fri­day Har­bor.  Com­pared to the same week­end in 2013, fer­ry traf­fic to Fri­day Har­bor was up by 36%.  Of that per­cent­age one-fourth were vehi­cles and three-fourths were walk-on pas­sen­gers.  Since all Fes­ti­val venues are with­in walk­ing dis­tance of the fer­ry, it appears that many off-islanders chose to leave their cars on the main­land – min­i­miz­ing traf­fic con­ges­tion in Fri­day Har­bor as well as hav­ing a pos­i­tive envi­ron­men­tal impact.
