This fucking commercial.

I tried to embed it but I couldn't, so hopefully linking it here will work. The first time I saw it, I chuckled a little. But it has run in front of, I believe, every single Press & Industry screening I've attended (13 so far). So now it's not so funny. I know it by heart, and it's not nuanced and clever enough for the kind of analysis something gets when you see it 13 times. And when it comes up before every damn show, I have to stifle the urge to groan out loud.

Here's why this doesn't make any damn sense: I've been to two general public screenings so far, and it didn't run in front of either of those films. So somewhere, someone decided that they just wanted to ram this fucking thing down our throats-- you know, the people who are going to be going to many, many screenings.

And why would you show a commercial for the festival AT THAT FESTIVAL? Clearly, you know, we've heard of this "Tribeca Film Festival" thing. We might even be covering it for media outlets!
