Chewdaism in the Fleish!
Invite Chewdaism stars ‘Chaimie’ and ‘Leizer,’ to show their film in the fleish at your next festival, cultural program or fundraiser!
Performers first, noshers second and filmmakers third, Eli Batalion & Jamie Elman, aka the yinglemen behind “YidLife Crisis” and this delicious doc, can come to your event to introduce and contextualize the film with their with patented shtick.
After the film, they field questions from the audience (and ask a few themselves, because, you know, #Jews), and may show one of their award-winning shorts, give an impromptu lesson in Yiddish cursing/kvetching, or even break out into song!
For festivals, consider this for your: Opening night event, Closing night event, Patron Dinner or Fundraiser. Please Note that non-Canadian festivals may be eligible for support from the local Canadian consulate. Please contact us for more info.
