Philadelphia Film Office Executive Director and CEO Andrew Greenblatt will be the February speaker at the next installment of the Main Line's Dine & Dish - a new monthly dinner series presented by Realtor and tastemaker Michelle Leonard, and hosted at The Bercy in Ardmore. Greenblatt will share his personal tips for success on Monday, February 25, 2018, starting at 6:00pm. Last month, the speaker series kicked off with a sold out crowd and special guest Nicole Miller's Mary K Dougherty. Next month, the series continues in March with Marcus Allen, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Independent Region. Each month, the evening’s festivities begin at 6:00pm with a “meet and greet” reception, and dinner will then run through 9:00pm. Tickets are on sale now for $50 per person, and include a glass of sparkling wine, a three-course seated dinner, tax and gratuity. Tickets are available by calling The Bercy at (610) 589-0500.
“We are thrilled to welcome Andrew Greenblatt from the Philadelphia Film Society for our second Dine & Dish,” said event founder, Realtor Michelle Leonard. “After its sold-out debut, we were excited to invite Andrew to be this months speaker! Andrew is well versed in the entertainment industry and has tons of advice and stories to share. We look forward to an intimate evening while he shares his personal tips for success."
During Dine & Dish, guests will sip wine and share delicious cuisine with Greenblatt. Andrew will share what it’s like to work in the entertainment industry as an attorney and independent feature film producer. Greenblatt has worked in the New York and Los Angeles’ film industries and has firsthand experience with the dynamic world of film! He has held the position of CEO at Philadelphia Film Society since 2009. Prior to joining PFS Greenblatt produced numerous independent works, including a short film and four feature-length documentaries.
“Film is the most accessible art form. It’s able to be experienced, enjoyed and critiqued without any formal background,” said Greenblatt, a George Washington University Political Science graduate. “It’s able to bring diverse audiences together and create communities.”
Dinner for each Dine & Dish will be specially presented by Executive Chef Joe Monnich and his talented culinary team. Dine & Dish’s monthly wine selections will be curated by The Bercy’s Beverage Manager and award-winning Sommelier Steven Gullo.
Future Dine & Dish speakers are CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Independent Region Marcus Allen on Monday, March 25th, and the Official Phillie Phanatic Tom Burgoyne on Monday, April 22nd.
