Among the short films that will be screened during this year’s Fort Myers Film Festival is AKA. The short is about a tribe of bottlenose dolphins that crosses paths with a lone sailor in the equatorial mid-Atlantic ocean. One of those dolphins, Aka, wonders if his tribe has found a descendant of the long-lost ancient Sea Kings of Atlantis. When the unimaginable happens, their fates become intertwined, leaving the dolphins with a life-transforming decision to make. This timeless, captivating story reveals an almost-forgotten legend and inspires a call to action—in audiences of all ages—to honor and protect the oceans.

AKA premiered at the Glendale International Film Festival in California this past October, where it was awarded “Best Short Made By a Woman.” It has also screened at Sunshine City Film Festival in St. Petersburg, Florida (where it earned an honorable mention) and Big Apple Film Festival Florida Filmmakers and Screenwriters Showcase in Fort Lauderdale. AKA will be screened in the Thoughtful Shorts block on Saturday, April 13, beginning at 3:30 p.m. Following FMff, AKA will run at the Myrtle Beach International Film Festival in South Carolina April 23-27.
