FHFF-logoFRIDAY HARBOR, WA – The fourth annu­al Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val, which will be held Novem­ber 4–5- 6, would like to thank the San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion for their sup­port. Through a grant, the Fes­ti­val was able to enhance the sound qual­i­ty at four dif­fer­ent venues includ­ing: Brick­works, Earth­box, Fri­day Har­bor House, and the Grange.

The San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion was estab­lished in 1994 by a diverse group of islanders who want­ed to sup­port the qual­i­ty of life on San Juan Island. They wit­nessed the impor­tant work being done by local non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions and rec­og­nized the val­ue of invest­ing in their own com­mu­ni­ty.

Over the years, fam­i­lies, estates, indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions have used the Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion to sup­port their giv­ing and the qual­i­ty of island life.

The Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion is unique among non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions, because we aim to be a resource for both our donors and our com­mu­ni­ty non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions. The San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion pro­vides knowl­edge and exper­tise on both sides of the phil­an­thropic exchange. We dis­trib­ute grants to sup­port and advance local non­prof­it activ­i­ties and projects. We iden­ti­fy cur­rent and emerg­ing issues and crit­i­cal needs. We find ways to address short and long-term needs and help sup­port a healthy thriv­ing com­mu­ni­ty on San Juan Island. For more infor­ma­tion on the Foun­da­tion, please vis­it, http://sjicf.org/

Through­out the week­end of Novem­ber 4–5-6, the Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val will fea­ture qual­i­ty doc­u­men­taries and docu-dra­mas that high­light com­pelling sto­ries about human­i­tar­i­an efforts, envi­ron­men­tal issues, social con­cerns and dar­ing explo­rations.  Each film will be fol­lowed by live­ly dis­cus­sion with the film­mak­er or a local expert.  For addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion on this year’s fea­tured films and spe­cial events, vis­it the Festival’s web­site, www.fhff.org. And for infor­ma­tion on how to get to San Juan Island or where to stay, go to www.visitsanjuans.com.
