Want to be a Global Star and International Superhero??
Penntertainment-NYC Chairperson Jesse R. Tendler is volunteering with a team of awesome creatives to put together a short video for the United Nations Global Callout to promote healthy ways to stop the spread of COVID-19. We’ve come up with a funny concept to communicate a positive public message regarding the heroic benefits of staying home during this unprecedented time—and we need your help!
The spot is called SUPERHEROES AT HOME. In these trying times, YOU can be a superhero too—saving the world just by staying at home! We want you to show us how YOU are being a superhero! (Check out the photos for our own interpretations! 😀 )
HERE'S WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU: • A horizontal (landscape) video, from 5-30 seconds long, of your interpretation of the theme SUPERHEROES AT HOME. For example, how are YOU a Professional Dancer, Rockstar, Architect, Gourmet Chef, Artist, Athlete, Wildlife Expert, etc.— all while staying at home? • Don’t worry about the sound quality and please don't include any dialogue (we’ll be adding music later). • Please send your video as an MP4 file to SuperheroesAtHome@gmail.com by 6PM Eastern Time on Monday, April 6, 2020.
***And PLEASE SHARE THIS POST with your friends and networks—we’d love to get as many submissions as possible by the deadline!*** ... See MoreSee Less
In case you haven't seen it, here's the wonderful spotlight that The Power of Penn campaign gave our phenomenal 8th Annual Penn Sundance Schmooze event this year: powerofpenn.upenn.edu/8th-annual-penn-sundance-schmooze/ Over 80 total attendees (almost 70 of whom are either Penn alumni or current students) mingled, feasted, and learned about Penn's involvement in film. Professor Peter Decherney moderated a panel including Nikki Silver, Fred Berger, and Emma Baiada. The food and drinks were delectable and plentiful! Many new industry connections were made, and we're already planning to capitalize on Penn's powerful presence in the film industry at next year's event! If you'd like to be added to the list for next year, please contact Jesse R. Tendler (email@example.com). Cheers! ... See MoreSee Less

ONE DISH, FOUR SEASONS: PENN ALUMNA AUTHOR BOOK SIGNING
Join Penn alumna, Jordan Zucker, C'97 during her book tour for her new cookbook, One Dish - Four Seasons: Food, Wine, and Sound - All Year Round on
Tuesday, October 29 at 6:20 PM at Diesel in Brentwood.
One Dish - Four Seasons: Food, Wine, and Sound - All Year Round is not your average cookbook. It's a fully immersive experience and seasonal journey. In this family collaboration and labor of love, Jordan and her family take a base recipe and by varying certain ingredients seasonally available, we churn out four versions, a winter, spring, summer, and fall. 20 dishes x 4 seasons = 80 recipes (plus a round of cocktails, of course). Then they pair each dish with a wine and a music album, further exploring the seasonality of these three elements of entertaining. It’s sprinkled with tons of jokes, layers, thoughtful attention to detail, and sophistication. A dash of humor, a pinch of personality, and a sprinkle of family lore round out the pages. ...

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference." -Lisa Niver C’89
