On November 4–5-6, 2016, the fourth annual Friday Harbor Film Festival will take place. We have an amazing line up this year of over 45 great documentary films and shorts that tell compelling stories. We are featuring several local films, including Sonic Sea to Taming Wild. In addition, the Young Filmmakers Project features films about, for and produced by young filmmakers, including four films by local students! (Mark your calendar for Saturday, Nov. 5th at 1pm and again on Sunday, Nov. 6th at 4pm. Showing at the Grange!)
Local school students have a unique opportunity to experience the Friday Harbor Film Festival for free! Retired high school counselor, Dr. Suzy Mygatt Wakefield has provided a generous donation that underwrites the cost of student admission to all films. Suzy said, “I believe these documentaries can teach us all a lot about what is going on in the world. Our high school teachers are already going a great job of teaching students about the world: films at the FHFF can help to enhance what they are already learning in their classrooms.”
Any interested student may receive a free student wristband, which provides access to films shown during the festival, a value $120. Elementary and Middle School students, accompanied by their parents/guardians, will need to pick up their wristbands at the Friday Harbor Film Festivals Office, 10 First Street, Friday Harbor.
A schedule of events, list of films and short trailers of films are available to view at www.fhff.org. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Friday Harbor Film Festival volunteer and student coordinator, Susan Waters at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 360–298-1939.
We look forward to students and their families participating in the great experiences the Friday Harbor Film Festival has to offer.
Our goal is to ENTERTAIN, INSPIRE, ENLIGHTEN…
