Bidder 70 – This is the inspiring story of a college student in Utah who derailed an illegal BLM oil and gas lease auction in 2008. Illustrating what one individual can accomplish, this film motivated islander Lynn Danaher to create the Friday Harbor Film Festival!

Pirate for the Sea – Paul Watson and his organization Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which is based here in Friday Harbor, are highlighted in this intriguing documentary

Damnation – An award-winning documentary, this film calls our attention to the state of our country’s dam system and what is being done to remedy several non-functional dams.

NO – In 1988, pressured by the international community, Chile’s military dictator Augusto Pinochet called for a referendum to decide his permanence in power. The successful opposition used the very simple slogan, “NO.”

Return of the Elwha – Learn how an old, defunct dam on the Olympic Peninsula’s scenic Elwha River was taken out - one of the major success stories in reclamation efforts.
