Tribeca Film Festival: 'New Yorker' cartoonists in 'Every Tuesday' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In Every Tuesday, a documentary short making its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, director Rachel Loube examines The New Yorker’s submission process for cartoons. Whether you think the magazine’s one-panels are perfect absurdist nuggets or fusty jokes for Upper East Siders, the documentary captures a series of interesting illustrators and their work. And as shown in the clip below, just because a cartoon has been rejected doesn’t mean that’s the end. “Everybody has a couple that are their favorites that don’t stand a chance in hell getting in,” says Zach Kanin, one of the film’s subjects. “But you just keep submitting hoping that you’ll somehow wear them down.”

The Tribeca Film Festival runs in New York from April 18-29, and Every Tuesday: A Portrait of The New Yorker Cartoonists premieres on April 22.
