iW NEWS | Gen Art Film Fest To Open With "Capacity"

The 13th Annual Gen Art Film Festival is set to kick off with Terry Kinney‘s “Diminished Capacity,” starring Matthew Broderick, Alan Alda and Virginia Madsen. The festival, unique in its format of showcasing seven features, seven shorts from emerging filmmakers, and seven premiere parties over seven days, also announced its closing film, Brad Furman‘s “The Take,” which stars John Leguizamo. “While there are only seven features, the slate represents a wide range of the powerful ideas and genres of independent filmmaking,” said Film Division Vice President Jeff Abramson in a statement. “The slate includes some of the best from other festivals such as Sundance, Slamdance, SXSW and Toronto as well as one world premiere. The slate represents a common theme, of over-coming adversity and finding inner peace in a complicated world through humor, action and exploration.” The festival runs April 2-8, 2008 in New York City.
