Thanks Seattle!

We got a very nice shout out this week from the Seattle Jewish Film Festival. Their audiences voted us the Best Short of the festival!

We are tickled like the seltzer bubbles in the back of your throat!

Egg Creams and Rooftops

We’ve had a great few weeks in seltzer land. Another trip out to Canarsie to fill up some bottles for a family party down in Philadelphia. Mom insisted on making egg creams for everyone, and they were a hit! We also came across this beautiful old French seltzer bottle in an antique shop down there. The double bulbous seltzer bottles are fairly rare and very old. This one had “veritable setzongene d. fevre” engraved on the pewter nozzle valve.

We also had our first screening that Kenny and his whole family attended in New York City last night. The great Rooftop Films did a program of New York Non-Fiction on the roof of a high school in the Lower East Side. It was a beautiful summer evening and a perfect night to watch short films. Kenny got great questions following the screening and we got lots of wonderful feedback from the audience. Looking forward to another rooftop screening in July! Maybe we will try to get Kenny to bring some seltzer this time.

Hot Docs – Home Town Show!

Just wrapped up a wonderful week at Hot Docs. It was something of a homecoming for Seltzer Works as I was born and raised in Toronto. The film was paired with Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker’s Kings of Pastry. Which was of course a great honor and Chris and Penny are lovely. They are starting a new film with The National, one of our favorite bands!

The film screened at the Bloor Cinema, one of the biggest rep houses in Toronto and the place we used to go watch Rocky Horror Picture Show in junior high school! We had such a wonderful response at the screenings and lots of ‘foodies’ came out to see the program, including Sarah Elton, whose book The Locavore is taking Canada by storm. It seems Gomberg’s Seltzer is sustainable!

It was a great week and it just primed us for our next round of screenings including our New York premiere on June 1st!
