Press Release — September 14, 2016

The fourth annu­al Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val, which will be held on Novem­ber 4–5-6, fea­tures a very excit­ing line-up of doc­u­men­tary films, as well as many spe­cial events that cel­e­brate the art of filmmaking.

Richard Chew, this year’s win­ner of The Andrew V. McLa­glen Life­time Achieve­ment Award, is a dis­tin­guished acad­e­my award-win­ning film edi­tor and pro­duc­er. The Fes­ti­val will hon­or his 50 years in the film indus­try at our Open­ing Night Gala at the San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty The­atre on Fri­day, Novem­ber 4, at 7 pm. Dur­ing the evening’s fes­tiv­i­ties, the doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ers in atten­dance will also be intro­duced along with an extend­ed amal­gam of trailers.

And on Sat­ur­day evening, this year’s Local Hero award win­ner, Bruce Barr, will be cel­e­brat­ed as some­one who exem­pli­fies a life ful­ly lived by mak­ing each and every day count.

peter-freelandPete Free­land, a suc­cess­ful actor, test pilot and astro­naut, will be a spe­cial guest of the Fes­ti­val, with plans to par­tic­i­pate in the Q & A after the screen­ings of The Last Man on the Moon, share his per­spec­tives dur­ing the Film­mak­ers Forum on Sun­day morn­ing, and min­gle with film­go­ers through­out the Festival’s three days.

This year we have two great cor­po­rate spon­sors Ken­more Air who this year becomes the offi­cial air­line of the Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val and KAVU active gear.

Ken­more is offer­ing spe­cial rates dur­ing the fall sea­son. Our film­go­ers can take full advan­tage to attend the Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val. Which qual­i­fies them for a 10% dis­count on the cost of their Film Fes­ti­val tick­ets as well as a reusable stain­less steel water bot­tle. The Fri­day Har­bor film Fes­ti­val makes every effort to be envi­ron­men­tal­ly respon­si­ble and so we offer free 5 gal­lon jugs of water at each venue through­out the entire film Fes­ti­val for refill­ing water bot­tles, sup­plied by Inter Island Water Company.

KAVU is our spon­sor for our local hero award this year on Sat­ur­day night, rep­re­sen­ta­tives will be on hand through­out the weekend.

Over 50 films have been sched­uled dur­ing the Fes­ti­val, fea­tur­ing 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.

Oth­er spe­cial events include:

  • A Film­mak­ers Forum on Sun­day morn­ing, the 6th, dur­ing which audi­ence mem­bers can learn about the chal­lenges of doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ing and engage the film­mak­ers with their questions;
  • The show­ing of a selec­tion of films by local stu­dents and young film­mak­ers (from as far away as France!), on both Sat­ur­day the 5th and Sun­day the 6th, spon­sored by the Young Film­mak­ers Project; and
  • The grand finale of the Fes­ti­val, Awards Night, on Sun­day evening the 6th, dur­ing which the films that were con­sid­ered excep­tion­al by audi­ence choice will be honored.

The Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val is proud to be dis­tin­guished by the large num­ber of film­mak­ers who per­son­al­ly come to the island each year from across the globe. The Festival’s cel­e­bra­tion of these film­mak­ers, as well as its focus on the con­ver­sa­tions that the films evoke, con­nect the audi­ence with both the film­mak­ers them­selves and the com­pelling sto­ries being told.

This year’s excit­ing line-up of films can be pre­viewed on 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.
