Friday Harbor Film Festival Launches Film Society



Among the many things that make the San Juan Islands special is the pleasantly surprising quality of cultural offerings. Beginning with its debut in 2013, The Friday Harbor Film Festival has presented thought-provoking documentary films that entertain, enlighten and inspire.

Thanks to more than 150 volunteers and 63 businesses and organizations, the second annual Friday Harbor Film Festival was extraordinarily successful. During one weekend in November, over 3000 islanders and visitors viewed an exciting selection of 30 full-length and 12 short films all in some way related to the Pacific Rim. This was a 55% increase over the 2013 inaugural year attendance.
