The Fort Myers Film Festival is kicking off its 10th annual with a local bull riding feature documentary by Tony Rammos. “Ride Till I Die” follows three bull riders chasing the dream of winning a championship and one man’s race against time for that elusive title.
For Ricky Ringer, bull riding was always his life, but he could never win a championship. Twenty-five years later, along with his son, Lil’ Ricky, and fellow rider Ernie Courson, Ricky continues to ride and despite warnings from his wife, his mother, and his ailing body, Ricky is determined to chase that elusive title or die trying.
The screening will be held with a scaled back Red Carpet Opening Night and will be celebrated with excitement and style at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center at 7 p.m. The VIP event will begin with the red carpet rolling out, paparazzi clicking and doors opening at 6 p.m. for drinks, socially distant mingling & musical entertainment with local and international filmmakers prior to the featured movie.
While black tie is usually encouraged for the fests opening night, this year all are welcome to come as they are, even get a little country in step with the theme of the evening.
