Event details

Join fellow film aficionados as the Fort Myers Film Festival screens independent films in the Foulds Theatre.

Fishers throughout East Alabama depend on the mighty Coosa River for food, recreation and a family pastime that goes back generations. But do fishermen and women – and their families – have a right to know which fish are safe to consume?

Not currently in Alabama, the River State. Coosa Riverkeeper and other advocates are working to give fishers across the entire state a right.

This screening will take place onsite in the Alliance theatre at 1 p.m, 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. A $10 suggested donation is your ticket to this event.

Please note: if you are joining us for onsite programming, we ask that you adhere to signage and procedures posted on our campus. Face masks are required at all times and you are advised to keep 6 feet (2 meters) between you and others.
