The 8th annual Fort Myers Film Festival kicks off next week. The five-day festival features independent films in a broad range of genres, including the premiere showing of the rock documentary “Melody Makers,” about the rise and fall of the world’s first influential music publication, and a new documentary about U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ahead of its theatrical release later this year.

Festival founder and director, Eric Raddatz, joins Gulf Coast Live along with Barrie Wentzell who is featured in the festival’s opening night screening of the rock documentary, “Melody Makers,” about the rise and fall of the world’s first influential music publication.  Wentzell served as chief contributing photographer for “Melody Maker Magazine” from 1965 to 1975.
