I repost the original code segment to make it more complete;

    from ftplib import FTP
    try:
        session = FTP(ftp_server_ip,ftp_user,ftp_password)
        file = open(filename,'rb') # file to send    
        session.storbinary('STOR ' +  filename, file) # send the file
    except Exception, errObj:
        print Exception
        print errObj
    file.close() # close file and FTP
    session.quit()
