Tisch Gala 2018

An electrifying evening showcasing Tisch student and alumni talent to raise funds to support critical student needs.

Thank you for your support of the 2018 Tisch Gala! With your generosity, we raised over $1 million in support of our most pressing student needs.

The evening honored Cinema Studies alumnus Eddy Moretti, along with Film & TV alumni Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus, the schoool's first father-daughter honorees. Dean's Council member Clive Davis also received a special tribute, 15 years after being honored at the first Tisch Gala. 

Featured speakers included Dean Allyson Green, Ana Lily Amirpour, and alumnus and Dean's Council member Alec Baldwin. The evening also included special student performances by the cLIVE house band featuring students from the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, an opening song written and performed by Recorded Music student Austin Crute, a medley of song and dance from the Department of Drama student cast of Swing, and a powerful song of love performed by Drama alumna Shaina Taub along with fellow alumni and current students.
