Submitted by the Friday Harbor Film Festival

Celebrate Oscar night with the Friday Harbor Film Festival at the San Juan Island Yacht Club, located at 273 Front St. in Friday Harbor, on Feb. 26. Doors open at 4:30 p.m.

Tickets for this fun soiree, dinner, silent and live auction are available at the festival office, starting Jan. 16. It costs $60 per ticket, $100 for two tickets bought at once and $400 for a table of eight.

This Oscar night party will be a black tie, formal event, so plan to dress in your finest Hollywood-inspired attire or as a favorite film character. Girlfriends, 2nd Act, the Thrift Store and the Costume Shop at San Juan Community Theatre (open 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday) plan to help attendees be glamorous!

Festivities will begin with wine, beer and appetizers reception, allowing time to preview the silent auction items and followed by dinner during the screening of the Academy Awards ceremony. During commercials, there will be an exciting live auction, and throughout the evening there will be opportunities to bid on a wonderful array of silent auction items. These include sailing trips, great art and jewelry, vacations rentals on Kauai, weekend getaways in Tofino and Seattle, culinary delights, horseback riding, flight seeing, yacht cruises, whale watching and sea kayaking, just to name a few.

All auction proceeds will help ensure the festival’s continued efforts to support documentary filmmakers, the Young Filmmakers Project and Winter Film Series, as well as the necessary upgrading of our software, sound and video equipment to guarantee high-quality screening for festival attendees.
