Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers




Tinsel & Tine (Reel & Dine) is about discovering what I find pleasing in Film & Food -  My post/commentary are from the perspective of someone who truly reveres good storytelling, and possesses a voracious appetite.

Although I also write about my dining experiences and food events, the blog is primarily film-centric. My writing style weaves together personal anecdotes and observations in conjunction with film reviews, reporting from film festivals and preview film screenings. Not to mention, whenever possible, highlighting the simpatico of food in film!

Tinsel & Tine encourages blog contributors. Please send
your film festival experiences - from big and small film festivals - pictures, short reviews, long reviews, food & film tie-ins, report on the celebrities, the atmosphere etc... Feel free to share your festival coverage during or after the festival.  (Blogging credit only compensation).



Philadelphia Film Festival (Cinefest09)

This past April I covered the Philadelphia Film Festival(Cinefest09) as Press.


I'm creating the possibility of covering Film Festival's around the world, blogging, interviewing and reviewing!


Here's a sampling of pre-Festival Coverage:


Last week, held at Patou Restaurant, I attended Curators on Tour,
a lively and informative conversation with the Curators of the Festival
regarding How, Why and What films are in store for the Festival this

To my surprise, they have added a series entitled Fade to Black, a cross section of films geared toward African Americans, by Black Filmmakers, curated by Reelblack's, Mike D.

Now, you may recall, last year I interviewed both curator, Scott Johnston
and then non-curator, Mike D, on this very idea. And inquired as to why
there was only one African American film offered during the festival.
Mike D's response "
don't really have anything negative to say, I think there is a definite
need for an African-American Film Festival in this city and I wouldn't
expect PFF, which has its own niche to take responsibility for filling
the void."
Hmmm.... [

ever so cordially brought this focus into the discussion at Patou and
both men responded with grace and acknowledgment. Truly, I'm happy to
see this addition to the PFF/Cinefest.
