Letter to Elementary and Middle School Parents and Guardians

FHFF-logoOn 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 volunteers@fhff.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

Sin­cere­ly,

Lynn Dana­her, Director

Karen Palmer, Producer
