The Tribeca Film Festival is in full swing, and the festival has generously given us some tickets to hand out for one of its accompanying panels:
Thursday, May 3rd at 7:00pm
Ah, to be famous. The money, the lifestyle, the paparazzi picking through your garbage cans … With the price tag on interviews, pictures, anything having to do with a celebrity growing higher each day, Tribeca Talks gets serious about fame. What drives it, who wants it and is it something you are born to have? Our panel of scientists and damage-control experts discuss the psychological roots behind the need to swivel necks and the collateral damage that comes with being a household name. Jake Halpern (Author, Fame Junkies), Robert B. Millman M.D. (Saul P. Steinberg Distinguished professor of Psychiatry and Public Health, Acquired Situational Narcissism), Bruce Dern (They Shoot Horses Don’t They?, Things I’ve Said, But Probably Shouldn’t Have: An Unrepentant Memoir), Janice Min (editor, US Weekly). Josh Wolk (Entertainment Weekly) moderates.
First two e-mailers to respond send us an e-mail [fishbowlny AT mediabistro DOT com] proclaiming how super famous a blog FishbowlNY is get a pair of tickets each to tomorrow’s panel.
