Marco Rubio Attends Film at G-Star During Palm Beach International Film Festival

rubio-gstar(PALM SPRINGS, FL) APRIL 15 2016– What does a former Presidential Candidate do to relax after jettisoning from the lion’s den?

If you’re Marco Rubio, you go to see an independent film “Lionheart” at G-Star School of the Arts here, one of the many Palm Beach International Film Festival’s films being shown around Palm Beach County.

Yes, running for President of the United States against lions like Donald Trump can be one of the most demanding and exhausting endeavors a person can ever aspire to do.  There is little time for family, friends and relaxation.  But on Sunday Marco Rubio found that time.

Surrounded by family and close friends, Senator Rubio looked relaxed while enjoying the film titled “Lionheart” written and directed by his nephew, Orlando Cicilia, III.

The cast and crew of the film were on hand to view the powerfully filmed drama of a young impoverished boxer on the threshold of the biggest fight of his career – a chance to have it all or nothing. Sounds like fighting to become President.

Former State Representative Ralph Arza, who is the head of the Florida Charter School Alliance, was also in attendance.  Both the Senator and the film received an enthusiastic reception from the audience.

Senator Rubio remained after the film for quite some time talking with everyone.  He posed for pictures with G-Star School of the Arts alumni and with the school’s founder, Greg Hauptner.

“He is a very nice person, completely approachable,” says Hauptner.  “He took his time to speak with everyone.  He is a brilliant man who is also kind and caring.”

Hauptner’s son, Gregory, said, “I couldn’t believe he was here.  I was so nervous, but he was so nice.  I really enjoyed talking with him.”

The Palm Beach International Film Festival continues on this week at the G-Star Studios Sound Stage Theater as well as at three other venues around Palm Beach County.

“That’s part of the excitement of the PBI Film Festival.  You never know who you’ll meet at any film showing here at any time . . . maybe even a future President of the United States!” said Hauptner.

Sophiastar is pleased to announce its viral social media marketing for actors, musicians and entertainers that want to increase popularity and organically develop a large fan base on the web.

Now this was a lucky shot, but when a professional marketing firm is hired to implement a viral social media marketing campaign, the chance of being discovered by Scooter Braun or other talent managers increases dramatically.

Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Google Plus, and other social media sites have transformed the ways we communicate and network. Professional social media marketing is now a major networking tool to support career growth. Sophiastar provides its clients with an aggressive and nuanced approach to social media campaigning to reach large audiences, create familiarity, increasing popularity and achieve success.
