Film Shot on Florida West Coast to Be Featured at Fort Myers Beach Film Festival

FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla.--(Business Wire)--Among the films to screen at the Fort Myers Beach Film Festival is “Blind Pass,” a psychological drama/thriller starring Armand Assante. It will be shown during the Seventh Annual  Fort Myers Beach Film Festival happening on Fort Myers Beach April 24-28, 2013. Screenings of several unique independent films will take place continuously over the four-day festival at Beach Theater, 6425 Estero Blvd.
