Welcome to the Tambakos Programs at Merrimack College

The Tambakos Film Collection and the Tambakos Classic Film Series at Merrimack College commemorate the life and passion of alumnus Demmy (Peter) Tambakos ’74. At the time of his accidental death, Tambakos was an aspiring screenwriter.

To commemorate his friend and colleague, playwright and actor George Furth donated his extensive film collection and an endowment fund to the College. Furth has enjoyed a successful career in Hollywood and on Broadway. He is a member of the Motion Picture Academy and has received two Tony awards.
