TINSEL & TINE

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).

20th Philadelphia Film Festival - Day 1 - 4 Picks

I picked up my press pass for the 20th Anniversary Philadelphia Film Festival tonight!
Just to get you in the festival mood, here's the films I plan to see
the first few days (Thursday, October 20th thru Sunday October 23rd). Of
course, the festival runs till November 3rd, and I plan to be present

facebook and twitter each day what film(s) I plan to see. In fact, if
time runs short and things get hectic, my commentary on a few films may
never make it to this blog or PFF blog, but may only be posted on facebook / twitter, so if you're interested, please follow me.
