The City of Augustine celebrated Pedro Menendez’s birthday with a Gala Night that had the feel of a carnival in Venice. Artists, performers and guests mingled and enjoy an evening of food, drink and music. This event was special for the reason that we had a group of officials from Aviles, Spain, the birth place of Pedro Menendez the founder of St Augustine.

The young film makers at Flagler College were able to be part of the St Augustine’s Film Festival 2015 this last weekend. They showed short films that were creative, and some were avant-garde in their core.
By the applause of the audience they loved the films and their subjects, and believe it or not, they were ready for more.
Hopefully these young people will probably be some of America’s future film makers, always remember a film can save a life or the world.
Sunday January 25th was the last day of the St Augustine Film Festival. the last day featured the film by Daniel Baldwin “The Wisdom to Know the Difference”. Baldwin wrote, produced, directed and co-stared in the film, he said that it was a difficult task, but a movie close to his heart.
The audience was touched and moved by the characters in the film, and the journey of the story it told.
The film festival was a success and a wonderful event to be part of as an organizer/volunteer or as a film goer. Hopefully this event will be a permanent part of our city.
