All the glitz and glamour of Hollywood is in Southwest Florida starting Thursday night because of the Naples International Film Festival at Artis-Naples.

The red carpet for the 14th annual film festival saw directors, producers, and all sorts of different filmmakers from all over the world.

The presenting sponsors from the film festival this year are Dr. Richard and Christine Lublin, who spoke with WINK News on the red carpet before the event.

“It’s very important because Southwest Florida has had a very difficult year,” Richard said. “And now we are able to bring some glamour and some happiness here for the weekend, and we have some wonderful films and some wonderful directors. Actors will come join us and it’s going to be a wonderful weekend. We’re all excited about this. We’ve done this every year, but this year is the most important year because it’s been such a difficult year for Southwest Florida. And we’re thrilled to be here.”

“Naples will rebuild itself. It’s going to be as beautiful and wonderful as it was before the storm,” Richard said.

The film festival is going on all weekend at Artis-Naples.
