The mother/daughter team behind 850 Music & Entertainment, with the support from Rock Destin and Club LA, launched Kite Film Fest in 2016. “Our goal is to create an event to highlight the local film community. For three years we’ve been a part of many filmmakers seeing their project on a theatre grade screen and sound system for the first time. It’s always an honor to be a part of that,” says Heather Hedrick.
“We want Kite Film Fest to be a celebration,” says Nikki Hedrick. “We want to minimize roadblocks for participation for our local film community and the indie film community at large, it’s why we are continuing the tradition of the festival being free to submit and free to attend.”
