This was the fourth annual Fort Myers Film Festival. Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, Alliance for the Arts and Broadway Palm Theatre were the locations used by FMff for the premiere, film screenings and panels.

During the FMff film festival there was much preparation involved with the locations, panels, accommodations, talent, transportation, tech check for sound and video, judges, guests, celebs, food preparations, decorations, media and more.

"The festival's premiere film was "Alive Inside: A Story of Music & Memory." It is Mr. Rossato-Bennett's first feature length offering. The film is an award-winning independent film about music therapy with Alzheimer's patients.

This has been another great year and festival, and we look forward to presenting you with event photos and the names of the many winners soon! - Eric Raddatz, FMff Founder and Executive Director
