The Orcas Island Film Festival continues its Outdoor Summer Series and invites you to have an “out of this world” experience on Sunday, Aug. 11 at OrcaSong farm for a free screening of “Apollo 11,” a cinematic event 50 years in the making.

Crafted from previously unseen 70mm film footage and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, this new documentary transports moviegoers to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission: Apollo 11, the one that first put men on the Moon and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into American icons and illuminates just how revolutionary that journey was. You will also get a glimpse of Orcas Island’s own astronaut, Bill Anders.

“I can’t imagine a better way to watch this extraordinary film as under the stars at OrcaSong farm,” says OIFF director Donna Laslo.

The film will start at dusk, around 8:30 p.m. OrcaSong farm is located at 280 Dolphin Bay Road. People are welcome to come early and have a picnic,.

Please use the main entrance on Orcas Road across the street from the Grange and those that need a little extra assistance use the farmers entrance on Dolphin Bay road.

The Summer Film Series is underwritten by OrcaSong farm.
