What: Founders Robert and Marion Einbeck, Director, Anthony Fabian and Fashion Designer, Catherine Malandrino from the 15th Annual Time for Peace Film & Music Awards, will preside over the NASDAQ opening bell. The 15th Annual Time For Peace Film & Music Awards, will take place at the Jumeirah Essex House. Founded in 1994 by Marion and Robert Einbeck, the Time For Peace Film & Music Awards recognizes outstanding projects and people in entertainment that promote humanist values such as tolerance, respect for differences, better understanding between people and the preservation of our shared environment. Each year a panel of experts selects the nominees, and a jury committee consisting of 20-30 ambassadors to the U.N. - itself deeply concerned with promoting humanist values - chooses the winners. The Einbecks are currently working on an international expansion of Time For Peace, which will include a permanent architecturally stunning art space (location to be determined) that will be devoted to supporting and promoting humanist values and good will throughout the world. The space will house a cinema, a concert hall, an exhibition hall, a cafeteria and retail center, all dedicated to the arts. It is their dream to establish this venture in 2015. This year's winners of the Time for Peace Awards include: FILM: Filmmaker, Mark Herman for The Boy In The Striped Pajamas FIRST FILM: Filmmaker Anthony Fabian for Skin EUROPEAN FILM: Filmmaker Philippe Muyl for Magic MUSICAL GROUP: The Hjaltalin for their song "The Trees Don't Like the Smoke" Where: NASDAQ MarketSite - 4 Times Square - 43rd & Broadway - Broadcast Studio When: Monday, October 26th, 2009 at 9:15 - 9:30 a.m. ET Contacts: BWR Public Relations Stacy Brock Quinn (212) 901-3943 firstname.lastname@example.org NASDAQ MarketSite: Jolene Libretto (646) 441-5220 Jolene.Libretto@nasdaqomx.com
