5/2/07, Featuring David Cross, Rob Riggle, Mariel Hemmingway
UCB Theater, NYC

For people like me who think the Tribeca Film Festival is the most overrated ego fuckfest jerk-offathon to hit NYC every year, UCB Theater has an antedote. From the website

Join host Paul Bogdonavich (Seth Morris), noted film director, film historian and dog food entrepreneur as he celebrates the Tribeca Film Fest. Mr. Bogdonavich will welcome luminaries from the world of cinema as well as those who have nothing to do with film festival in any way.

Scheduled to appear:

David Cross of “Mr. Show,” Arrested Development”, and “The Grand” ,official selection of the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival

With other surprise guests as well as a visit from Harvey Weinstein and Festival Founder Robert Dinero (aka Curtis Gwinn and John Gemberling)

Hosted by Seth Morris of “Greetings From Earth” official selection of the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, Short Film Competition.

David Wain was initially slated to appear, but now he isn't listed on the flier. They have however added Mariel Hemmingway (really!?) and The Daily Show's Rob Riggle. Insane. Oh, and it's $8, not $5 and reservations are sold out.
