flaglerlogoThe 4th annual Flagler Film Festival wrapped up its three-day run Sunday featuring a weekend of nearly non-stop films.

Kathy Winner said she has seen every movie screened at the Flagler Film Festival over the past three years and aimed to do the same during this year’s festival, which featured more than 100 short films from all over the world.

“I’m here to see every film,” she said. “It’s a contest for me. I love the uniqueness of the films. I could stay for a hundred films.”

Kathie Barry, one of the festival’s co-founders, was pleased with the turnout and the opportunity for filmmakers to network.

No Passport Needed for Flagler Film Festival, published in the Palm Coast Observer by: Jacque Estes Community Editor, Jan. 9, 2017

The fourth annual Flagler Film festival is this weekend at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Kathie Barry never thought about film festivals, not until four years ago when she attended one with her son, filmmaker Kevin James Barry.
“I was inspired by the filmmakers we met,” Kathie Barry said.

After attending another film festival, produced by a couple in Oklahoma, Barry started thinking about starting one in Flagler County.

“Filmmakers appreciate these festivals,” Barry said. “Not everyone can go to Cannes, and this makes it accessible to them.” This year the festival features 60 films, and includes shorts and full-length films, as well as two free films to raise money for a local charity.
