‘AKA’ Best Inspirational Film at Austin Revolution


AKA was one of the short films juried into this year’s Fort Myers Film Festival. It’s a homegrown affair, having been adapted for the screen by Sanibel filmmaker Julia Mann from a 1981 novel by Tristan Jones and filmed by a local production crew that included videographer Rusty Farst of Sanibel, visual and sound editor Dave Beaty of Dreamtime Entertainment, and Captains Bill Cromie and Billy Kirkland. And the “fantabulous” Austin Revolution Film Festival 2019 just named AKA its Best Inspirational Film!

AKA premiered at the Glendale International Film Festival in California in October of 2018, where it was awarded “Best Short Made By a Woman.” Since the Fort Myers Film Festival, AKA has been screened at the Florence Film Awards (Honorable Mention: Fantasy), Jersey Shore Film Festival 2019 (Best Environmental Short), Myrtle Beach International Film Festival, 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.

It will be shown next at the Catalina Film Festival, which runs September 25-29, 2019.

September 9, 2019.
