The votes were tallied on Monday, an the 77-minute film directed by Mike Canzoniero about the poignant relationship between gas station owner Jimmy Olinkiewicz and outsider artist Harold Olson on Shelter Island was the favorite.

The artist - who goes by Harald Marinius - has a wonderful web site, for folks who are looking for more information. The Q&A at the film screening was delightful... http://haraldolson.com/

michael canzoniero's film"Shelter Island :Art etc.": is a jump out of your seat and yell BRAVO film,on all levels.It portrays SI through the eyes of it "stars",giving the viewer a front row seat to their humanity.The artist is pure joy because he is a passionate,driven painter who paints because that is what he is,an artist.I am thankful Harald has good people in his life and that he is a part of our small community.Thank you Jimmy and Mike for getting Harald on the big screen,Jean Lawless
