2011 Fort Myers Film Festival Accepts Four Blue Marble Films
 
Blue Marble Films members had five films accepted into the 2011 Fort Myers Film Festival.  In the Features category, Mickey B, produced by Jennifer Marquis-Muradaz, is an adapted version of Shakespeare's Macbeth set in a Northern Irish prison, with characters played almost entirely by actual prisoners.  In addition, Category A Mickey B, a documentary about how the feature film was made, received positive reviews from the festival audience.   Jennifer's short film, Blindness of Immokalee, about the 2010 Haitian earthquake and produced with the support of the United Arts Council of Collier County and the Miracle Plus Program, was also screened and nominated for "Best Short Short Film."

BMF members Roberta Moore and Greg Helton were represented in the Local Films Category with their short documentary, PoleStar, which examines the surprising  physical and emotional transformation brought about in the lives of ordinary women through pole dance fitness training. The film was a favorite in its FMFF Monday night preview and was nominated for Best Short Film.

Jennifer Marquis-Muradaz also had another film in the FMFF.  Donna's Story, about 57 year old Donna Tomassoni, shows how she turns her life around by returning to college to start a new career when the economy makes it almost impossible for her to get a job.
