The Florida Film Festival will showcase the award-winning film, Bomber, written and directed by Paul Cotter and edited by Full Sail University graduate, Matt Maddox, as part of its American Independent Competition.
A bittersweet comedy about love, family and dropping bombs on Germany, Bomber follows Russ, a useless 30-something who inadvertently finds himself trapped in a van and driving on a nightmare road trip with his 83-year old parents to Germany.
"We're excited to play Bomber in this year's competition lineup," said Matthew Curtis, Programming Director of Enzian and the Florida Film Festival. "The filmmaking team attached to this dramatic-comedy did an extraordinary job telling a touching and original story, and it's always nice to see a film project of this caliber have a Central Florida connection."
After graduating from Full Sail University, Maddox went on to be a part of the editorial production team of several major motion pictures including In Good Company, The Perfect Man, The Great Buck Howard, and He's Just Not That Into You.
"As primary sponsor of the Florida Film Festival, each year Full Sail looks forward to sharing ten days of extraordinary film with the Central Florida community," said Rick Ramsey, Program Director of Film at Full Sail University. "This year, we are delighted to recognize our graduate, Matt Maddox, for his incredible achievements in the industry of film and for his phenomenal work as the editor of the award-winning film, Bomber."
Bomber, which won numerous awards at international film festivals, screens Monday, April 12 at 7:00 p.m. and Thursday, April 15 at 7:15pm. Both screening are at the Regal Winter Park Village 20.
Tickets are $10 and may be purchased online at FloridaFilmFestival.com or over the phone at 407-629-1088 extension 225.
