With a keen eye and unending mastery John Pallotta vision’s the actor inside of you and like a craftsman, he pulls that vision into reality. As an acting teacher, he is a master of the human condition. He sees our potential as human beings and teaches his students to free their true nature through acting.
John Pallotta actors are given opportunities they won’t find in any other acting class, including intensive camera work and on-set, on-location study, where students get a chance to explore all facets of film work, from lighting, sound, location scouting and directing to working with each other on camera on a professional set. You put all this together and the result, we’ve found, is students coming out of our studio more prepared for not just the business, but life in general.

This screening is part of our SHARED STORIES: THE INTERSECTION OF BLACK AND JEWISH EXPERIENCES IN AMERICA series (Every Monday night, July 13 – August 3)
Getting beyond his affiliation with the Rat Pack, director Samuel D. Pollard’s intimate portrait of Sammy Davis, Jr. paints a vivid picture of a child prodigy, world-class entertainer, and civil rights activist. Having achieved stardom during a period of American history fraught with racial barriers, the effervescent, tap-dancing icon struggled against prejudice and frequently courted controversy. In fact, one of his most memorable moves transpired off the dance floor when, while recovering from a serious car accident, he famously announced his decision to convert to Judaism.
A self-made success, it was Sammy Davis, Jr.’s extraordinary talent and resilience that propelled him to the top and established him as the musical legend we know today!
After registering, you will receive a Vimeo link to the film at 6:00 PM EST the evening of the screening. This link will be valid for 24 hours.

Due to the pandemic, the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival (GPJFF) was unfortunately forced to cancel its planned showing of RESISTANCE early this March. The film, available to rent on various streaming platforms for as little as $4.99, tells the remarkable true story of Marcel Marceau, the famed mime who joined the French Resistance and helped thousands of Jewish orphaned children escape from Nazi-occupied Europe.
On Thursday, August 27 at 7 PM EDT, GPJFF will host a FREE live virtual discussion with the director of the film, Jonathan Jakubowicz, and two of its stars, Academy Award nominee Jesse Eisenberg (THE SOCIAL NETWORK, NOW YOU SEE ME) and Géza Röhrig (SON OF SAUL, TO DUST).
The discussion will take place on our Crowdcast platform. All you have to do is register through there, click on “Save my spot!”, and you’re all set! Crowdcast will send you reminders leading up to the event.
