While the storm may be over, the recovery is ongoing. The Pace Cares Initiative has worked diligently to provide hands-on assistance, donations of goods, and monetary relief for those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
On Saturday, December 7, head to Pleasantville for a day of fun, film, and food as grad students from Dyson College’s Media, Communication, and Visual Arts program curate this first-ever, one-day film festival in celebration of Pleasantville’s 50th anniversary.
The festival, which is free and open to the public, features the best-loved films from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s. In addition to the screenings, there will be break-out panel discussions featuring Pace’s expert faculty who will weigh in on the significance of the decade’s cinema.
After the screenings, put on your best vintage-inspired duds (black tie not required) and stroll down Pace’s red carpet to the gala reception. Guests will have the opportunity to pose with their favorite actors and actresses (okay, fine, they’re cardboard cut outs, but it will be fun—we promise!). Don’t forget to share your best pics on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #PLV50.
Opportunitas is delivered each month to all Pace faculty and staff. If you have an idea for a story, an event, or a faculty or staff media mention, please email the editor, Alyssa Cressotti, at email@example.com. Your input is welcome.
