Friday Harbor Film Festival wishes to congratulate the filmmakers for winning "Best Feature Documentary" in this year's AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARDS!


Love is the Way brings together voices speaking in defense of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, highlighting the generations of stewardship by Gwich’in and Iñupiaq people. Inspired in part by footage of the late photographer Michio Hoshino, this film explores the friendships, values, and stories shaped by the place, and the strong commitments to its protection. From award-winning filmmakers Jeremy La Zelle and Kirstin Gates, this film reminds us of the sacred connections between us, and the ways that a place can teach us how to live with respect and compassion.
