315 co-founder Tim Ritter joins Fort Myers Film Festival
315 Films co-founder Tim Ritter has joined the brand new Fort Myers Film Festival as Submissions Coordinator, and will also serve as a member of the festival's advisory board. Ritter will aid in the viewing and selection of film submissions for the festival, as well as helping in planning, organizing and marketing the event. As a member of the Southwest Florida filmmaking community, Ritter will excuse himself from participating in the selection process for the Strictly Local category.
The Fort Myers Film Festival is an intelligent independent filmmaker's preferred event to create, unite and showcase the finest artistic cinematic works. The festival, slated to take place March 24-27, 2011 at the The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in Fort Myers, has begun accepting film submissions locally and internationally at www.fortmyersfilmfestival.com.

Tim Ritter, in addition to founding 315 Films with Clay Sisk, has written and directed two short films — The Long Wait and Keeper of the Earth — as well as starring in Shaken, Motel 2 and Tartaros, while serving as producer on all five. Next up, Ritter will help produce Remedy, a short thriller written and directed by Pat Mitchell. Ritter is dedicated to the growth and development of filmmaking in Southwest Florida.
