For the first time ever, aficionados of independent film can attend the Fort Myers Beach International Film Festival in the comfort of their living room Sept. 22 – 26.
Due to Corona virus safety concerns, the over 100 filmmakers who attend the festival from all points in the U.S. and globally as well as the well-being of patrons, volunteers and theater staff, organizers felt this was the best option as the show must go on.

We look forward to connecting to filmmakers with audiences as their work shines in a way that keeps everyone safe during the pandemic,” said Janeen Paulauskis, executive director of the festival.
