Sultans and Soldiers Has Launched

Woohoo! The playwriting contest, open to all Drexel University undergrads, is underway, in collaboration with playwright and professor Vijay Padaki and the Bangalore Little Theatre. Full scoop including a snapshot of the amazing history of India’s connection to the US Revolutionary War here.

This project, a Westphal IDEA Mini-Grant recipient, was made possible due in part to the generous support of the Philadelphia Foundation, the Drexel Westphal College of Media Arts & Design’s Dean’s Office of I.D.E.A., and the Westphal Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council.

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.
