CIFF47: PSQ March 22 – April 1, 2023 | Streams April 2 – April 9, 2023

World's Best Commercials 1995

Year: 1995
Country: International
Run Time: 70 minutes

One of the CIFF?s most popular attractions gets a makeover this year. Past programs brought Festival patrons the best of international TV spots in no particular order. Now the ads are neatly sorted into categories (Food and Drink, Travel and Entertainment) that emphasize the astonishing variety and ingenuity of advertisers from the UK, Australia, Italy, Chile, Japan and the USA-you didn?t think the Budweiser Frogs would be absent, did you? They?re joined by Nissin?s every-hungry caveman clan (up close this time), a harried daughter and her scheming mum for Tesco supermarkets, and an unforgettably sinister promo in favor (?) of Smirnoff Vodka. Pitchmen include Michael Jordan, Carl Lewis, Patrick Reynolds and Dr. Hannibal Lecter, while products range from sexual aids to the Barcelona Parakeets. But your tickets early; this show frequently sells out.
