eventize
 v.— «Publicity is selling what you have: the film’s stars and sometimes its director. Marketing, very often, is selling what you don’t have; it’s the art of the tease. A première lets the marketing and publicity teams join in a final effort to “eventize” a film, to move it to the top of the nation’s long to-do list.» —“The Cobra” by Tad Friend New Yorker Jan. 19, 2009.
