Hard to believe, but it’s been 25 years since we were first introduced to Steven Spielberg’s grown-up Peter Pan (the wonderful Robin Williams), his trusty sidekick Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts), and a look at the world of Never Never Land in a way we’d never seen it before, complete with the nefarious Captain Hook (the dazzlingly- tressed Dustin Hoffman) and a very unique group of Lost Boys.

Actor and poet Dante Basco (Avatar: The Last Airbender, Hook) appears at Boston University on Friday February 27, 2015 at 7:00 PM!
The BU Filipino Student Association is proud to present round two of our year-round lecture series. Our key speaker is Dante Basco!
FSA plans on holding a lecture series featuring prominent Filipino-American speakers who have risen to success in their respective fields, such as Dante Basco. Dante Basco is a Filipino-American Actor known for his roles as Rufio in Hook and Prince Zuko in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
He will be allotted an hour and fifteen minutes for his lecture with additional time for the audience to ask questions and potentially meet the speaker personally. This lecture series is a great opportunity to educate the BU community about how the speaker’s Filipino upbringing has impacted their decisions and morals in the stories he shares. As a prominent Filipino in the entertainment business, we can attract a broad array of students who are interested in hearing his story as well.
We hope that this event will show attendees a glimpse of what our Filipino heritage means to us–that it is not only one of which to be proud, but one whose ideals of love and unity we strive to share with as many as people as possible.
Tickets are free and available at the link! **SOLD OUT**

What is Fandom Society?
The main idea behind Fandom Society is that everyone is a fan of something. Whether it be video games, anime, webcomics, comics, etc. someone’s a fan of something. Fandom Society is a way to meet new people within these fandoms and even to meet and interact with people you who would normally be behind a signing booth. The main goal behind Fandom Society is to break down that barrier between the fan and the content creators (because even Dante Basco can be a fanboy). We also want to show mainstream media what it is to be in a fandom and to be into cosplay (let’s pretend HoC didn’t happen).
Cosplay ball means… Cosplay! If you want to create an entirely new cosplay for this party alone, go ahead. Or if you want to recycle one you’re really proud of, do that too! We’re going to have a lot of coverage of this event so bring your best foot forward. The hosts will also be going around looking for the best costumes and you will be put front and center in a fashion show for the entire party to see. I don’t know about you, but that’s some motive to bring a great cosplay.
Now what are you doing? Go and buy your tickets and bring your friends too!
