FMFF to open 10th anniversary film festival with Tony Rammos bull riding feature


The Fort Myers Film Festival is kicking off its 10th annual with a local bull riding feature documentary by Tony Rammos. Ride Till I Die follows three bull riders chasing the dream of winning a championship and one man’s race against time for that elusive title. That man is Ricky Ringer, and in spite of warnings from his wife, his mother and a body that’s breaking down after 25 years of bullriding competition, Ricky is more determined than ever to chase that elusive title … or die trying. [See official trailer here.]

The screening will be held in style at a scaled back Red Carpet Opening Night at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. The evening begins at 6:00 p.m., when the proverbial red carpet is rolled out to usher guests inside for drinks, musical entertainment and socially distant mixing and mingling with local and international filmmakers prior to the screening of the featured movie.

While black tie is usually encouraged for the fest’s opening night, this year attendees are welcome to come as they are. Better still, go country (denim and diamonds) in step with the theme of the evening.

Tickets are $15 for the movie only or $100 for the movie and VIP meet-and-greet. Guests will enjoy fully-stocked bar and a chance to meet with the stars of the evening’s film, other filmmakers and event VIPs. The event will provide the delicious foods and beverages.
