Red carpet photos


FMff Red Carpet PhotosIt’s one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year. The women are decked out in jewels and floor-length gowns. Their escorts sport tuxes and dress suits. It’s the Fort Myers Film Festival opening night gala, and one of many highlights of the evening is the red carpet that lines the walkway between the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery and the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall on the Lee campus of Florida SouthWestern State College. It’s a Eric, Amy Aplace for selfies. The papparazzi is on hand to snap pix as well. And this year, Fort Myers photographer Chris Kovaz (whose work has been featured in Dive Chronicles, Underwater Planet, Sport Fishing and Florida Sportsman) served as official photographer for the event.

And his red carpet photos are in!

“Of course we had world premieres, Florida premieres, and films that were inspiring and moving,” note Eric Raddatz, Melissa DeHaven and Melissa DeHaven Dtheir esteemed crew. “We had local films, films that were named winning a Pulitzer yesterday and films that moved communities to action. But we hear you loud and clear—you want to see the photos! So enjoy, tag yourself and tell a friend what fun you had.”

Without further, here are the photos by Chris Kovaz photography.
