Fulbright Opportunities in the Fine Arts Webinar

For those US peeps who are considering applying for a Fulbright, the recording of the 5/5/22 webinar on Fulbright Opportunities in the Fine Arts is now online in case you missed it. The other scheduled guest panelist was unable to attend, so I got to talk twice as much. 😄

You can also download the mp4 to watch later.

E.T., the Stolen Extraterrestrial?

Please join the Independent Film Circle for our next guest, Prof. Sudipto Shankar Roy, on Saturday, April 30th at 11am EST. You might first want to watch his jaw-dropping documentary, “Ordeal of an Impossible Dream” below.

Like Spielberg? All about E.T.? Or maybe you’re a screenwriter like me who feels infuriatingly certain that one of your scripts was once blatanly stolen? Get ready to have the top of your head blown off.

As always, this live, online event is free but pregregistration is required. Message me if you’d like to join.

An Unforgettable Night in DC

Bono, of course. Behind him to the left in the white mask is Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Last night I had the pleasure of representing Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design and Drexel’s Office of Global Engagement at the star-studded 2021 Fulbright Prize for International Understanding ceremony in our nation’s capital. This year, the award went to Bono in case you haven’t already figured that out.

My red carpet moment.

You can watch the entire inspiring ceremony below.

Myself with Prof. Johnson and IIE Co-President A. Sarah Ilchman. The IIE is the Institute of International Education, a global nonprofit that administers the Fulbright program for the US State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Bono’s jaw-dropping speech starts around 59:20 (the link is cued up for you). He is introduced by the Director General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the first woman and first African to hold the position, Dr. Ngozi Okon-Jo-Iweala.
